Looking for beautiful letterpress holiday cards? Come and shop at our Etsy Store! We just uploaded our holiday designs, including our newest holiday card, White Spruce, shown above. White Spruce features a special “rainbow roll” garland. Rainbow roll is a printing technique where half of the press is inked in one color and half in another color. The two colors mix and blend in the middle. Much care must be taken to keep the vibrancy of the colors at either end of the card, for as the press runs, the colors continue to mix.
Back to the cards on the Etsy site, there are some great options there for Winter Solstice and Hanukah, as well as Christmas.

This colorful vegetable themed wedding invitation is one of our favorites, for its color and uniqueness, as well as the personal connection it has to the bride and groom. The bride’s owns an organic produce business and the groom is a sommelier. In addition to the vegetables, grapes are featured on the envelopes.
Another of our favorite recent sets, this gate fold invitation opens onto a peaceful grassy field. This couple loved to take pictures of magical and whimsical looking garden doorways and gateways when they encountered them on their travels.
This wedding took place in the garden at the family home. There was a theme of white flowers, and we selected botanicals that were in white, in the family’s gardens, and in season for the ceremony.
This elegant style of Florentine invitation is very versatile. It works well in many different color schemes, and for different seasons. That’s why it’s one of the designs we’re showcasing in our new Prix Fixe offerings, which will be released next week. (Stay tuned!) This was also featured on Style Me Pretty a visually sumptuous blog about beautiful weddings.
This invitation was designed to match the urban chic, fun, cool, retro-modern look of The Smogg Shoppe in Los Angeles, where the reception was held. The venue displayed a wonderful blend of decor, including seemingly otherworldly plantings of succulents; vintage rugs, chairs, and signs; and a converted industrial urban loft style structure and fixtures.
Olive trees lined the drive to this wedding location in Napa Valley, California. We developed this stylized burled tree with with a contemporary boldness to match the couple’s aesthetic.
Maidenhair fern swirls around the text of this art nouveau influenced invitation, bringing a wonderful sense of flow to the image and text. The two elements work together with give and take, almost as if dancing.
These cherry blossom branches in raspberry and violet brought a stunning richness to this traditional style invitation.
