Christmas is drawing near and you forgot about sending out those Holiday Greeting cards didn't you?
Don't worry! Everyone has long Holiday to do lists (especially Santa) and sometimes there just isn't enough time for holiday cards.
So we're introducing Holiday Foil Frames, a quick way to add some shine to your holiday card or photos.
The frames are available in four patterns - christmas sweater, vine, dots, and holly berry.
See what a finished card looks like with a photo and letterpress greeting.
The Holidays are here! Tonight is the second night of Hanukkah and there are only 17 days until Christmas.
There's still time to finalize your holiday cards if you haven't yet.
As the holidays draw closer, we're reflecting on Christmas / Holiday cards past.
This custom holiday card was hand illustrated, foil stamped in gold, and backed with a photo.
The cards were paired with a kraft envelope with a foil liner (gold) and foil return address (red).
Today we're sharing a custom holiday card we printed for Pernod Absinthe.
These cards feature a hand lettered design and a beautifully illustrated cover.
It's always interesting to see the variety of styles for holiday cards.
The cards are printed on Crane's Lettra - the 100% cotton paper allows for a deep impression for the multicolor design.
Holiday cards are a great way to reach out to old customers or to say thank you to existing ones.
While the message of a corporate card should be consistent with your branding, you can always have fun with them!
A few weeks ago we announced the new 2015 Holiday Collection (Foil Filled Holiday Cards).
The day before Thanksgiving is the perfect time to share the best ways to customize them.

We all get wrapped up with family, cooking, and shopping, so we're also offering guest addressing. Send us your mailing list and we'll print it in full color or white ink.
Continuing with our Holiday posts, this custom ornament card we printed is a gorgeous mix of foil and flat printing.
Each ornament was tied with a metallic gold ribbon (1/4") that you can use to hang it on a christmas tree, shelf, or fridge.
The holiday ornaments can be customized with a family photo and a special message on the back.
Just as promised from yesterday's post (Foil Filled Holidays), here are the newest additions to our 2015 Holiday Collection!

April's TypeCard is here! We worked with Christian Pimentel, a Dominican Republic based graphic designer and artist to create a Titanic Remembrance Day card. The card was hand lettered by Christian with the words, "I Will Never Let Go".
We opted for a folded card this month, the finished piece was 4Bar, the perfect size for a little note! For the ink we hand mixed an arctic blue ice ink and added a touch of silver. As always these cards ship free with every order in the month of April so keep a lookout for them.
Titanic Remembrance Day is April 15th, and this year marks the 101st year since the fatal collision. Check out more information on the RMS Titanic here.
