This year we introduced a monthly print that highlights new and unique fonts. Last month’s card celebrated the New Year (Happy New Year Letterpress Card), and this month we’re celebrating Valentine’s Day. For the entire month of February, when your order ships, we’ll include one of these cards.
We used three different fonts for the design but the HeartBeats font was where it all started. Who doesn’t remember those tiny heart candies as a kid!
One of the best parts of the HeartBeats font is the knockout of each letter. A knockout like this creates what we call a faux-emboss, by giving the appearance of raised text. We’re in love with Appetite because of all great ligature glyphs that come with it and Singela is great unique hand written font. All of the fonts were found on the MyFonts website.
The card is 3″ square and was letterpress printed on cotton paper scraps with PMS Red 032 U ink.
Stay tuned for next month’s letterpress card! If you’ve got ideas for the card or a favorite font, share them below in the comments.
