Beautiful letterpress cards.



Letterpress, I love them! I always wanted to make something with letterpress, so I did. I designed a 4 color promo cards, half the size of a post card. There are so many great letterpress shops out there and I went with
Vertallee Letterpress + Printed Goods. They did amazing work!!
I keep looking at it and admiring their beautiful letterpress work.
I chose letterpress because I think their hand printed method well represents my hand printed towels.

Yuko - it was wonderful to find you through the Etsy featured seller. Can you silkscreen some paper prints at the same time? Goes to show I know nothing. I LOVE your letterpress cards also - were they expensive? I'm definitely bookmarking your blog.
well done!

Hi Tara,
Thanks for sweet comment!
print on paper or fabrics, pretty much same.
i was into printing on paper, like posters, last year, and now im into print on fabrics again.
letterpress, they're so beautiful. wish i knew how to do it.
it was bit pricy, but i think Vertalle letterpress + Print goods company gave me great price. they did amazing job.
and my cards represent my towels, so i didnt want to be cheap on that!
