If I'm being honest, this year's holiday line was a challenge. I had a tough time thinking about the holiday season, as I often do, in September. On top of it all, I decided to try printing a few letterpress cards, which presented its own challenges. Some of you may know that I acquired an old printing press this summer (I really should dedicate an entire post to that!), and while it was mostly ready for printing, I needed to make several adjustments to the press to make it function properly. It was a major learning experience, but a super fun one!
The letterpress line includes three cards printed with gold or silver metallic inks. The cards are printed on 120lb cotton card stock, and are truly luxurious. The metallic ink lettering gives a little bit of a shimmer in contrast to the color.
And my line wouldn't be complete without a few snarky cards. I have two new additions to a small line of honest cards that are paired with gold envelopes, and one new illustrated card that reveals my sentiments about snow. I lived in Syracuse, New York for five years of my life, and grew up in Indiana in a lake effect region close to Lake Michigan. Snow is not my friend, and I'm happy to enjoy the more temperate winters we get with minimal snow in Baltimore.
