A green tree and red car adorn this letterpress greeting card.
There is something about printing holiday cards that gets the whole shop in the holiday spirit. We spent some time this week printing a new batch of Fresh Cut holiday cards. Part of this new batch is going to our online stock and the other part was for a custom holiday card order. These cards and the rest of our 2011 Holiday Card line is available for purchase in the SHOP. See more photos after the break …
These cards were printed on one of our Vandercook cylinder presses (Universal III) in three colors: Green / Red / Black. We hand mixed the green and red and made sure to pick nice bright colors as they really pop on the paper.
This card like the rest in our 2011 collection are printed on 100% cotton paper (Crane’s Lettra – Pearl White). We creased the cards using a score rule and creasing matrix to make the cards fold without cracking.
The cards are sold in boxes of 6 (with 6 cotton A2 envelopes) for $18 in the SHOP. Sending holiday cards out to your clients? Place a custom order for holiday cards by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
