letterpress christmas cards now available!
I love the joy of receiving Christmas cards - the envelope in the mail box with a hand written address - a festive stamp and that tell tale "Card Only" sticker which brings a little flutter to your heart - it is always such an exciting moment, especially when it is hidden between bills and all that other boring mail which normally fills the box. A hidden joy that Christmas is just around the corner.
I must admit several years ago, life got too busy and sending Christmas cards was one of the first things on my Christmas list of things to do which was forgotten. But with a love of sending and receiving cards, this year we are determined to be organised and to sit down and to write to our loved ones. We hope it brings a little Christmas joy to their day.
In the spirit of reinventing the Christmas card tradition for the last few months my brain has been ticking over thinking of the perfect wording to reflect the joy, the love and the happiness of Christmas. With a little touch of humour, lots of heart warming and a touch of quirk we are pretty happy with the end result!
Each card measures 95mm x 130mm and comes complete with a brown kraft envelope. Our cards are available as single cards $6.00 (visit: red, orange, turquoise, silver) or as 6 packs $26.95 (here and here) in our online store - Available in limited numbers only.
Do you have a favourite? I particularly love the orange ink, but adore the simplicity of our red wording, but then again the silver ink is quite a delight and turquoise just never goes out of fashion. Which one do you like the best?
