They're here! They're here! While I had hoped to have had these ready a little earlier, they have finally arrived in the shop. This year's Valentine's Day line is a full line of letterpress goodness-- my first full letterpress line! For those of you that don't know what they means, here's the quick version of it all. I drawn my designs, put them into the computer, get photopolymer plates made with my designs, and finally use those plates in a 100+ year old press to transfer the designs to the cards. The final product, is a beautiful card that has an embossed type quality to it. And I'm in love.
All five of the new Valentine's Day cards are printed this way, my left arm cranking a giant wheel to work the press. After working on the press all afternoon yesterday, I woke up this morning with sore muscles in my left arm that I didn't even knew existed! I use 100% cotton card stock (fancy schmancy!) for all of the letterpress cards and the outcome is drool worthy if you're a paper nerd like me.
Starting today, you can save 20% off in the shop if you use the code VDAY20. The code expires on Saturday, so you have the next two days to snag your cards at a discount. I hope you love the new cards just as much as I do!
