letterpress christmas cards now available!

Do you send Christmas cards out each year? It seems like one of those dying past times that in our technological age that is slowly becoming forgotten.

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!

We designed and letterpress printed 4 different cards for this Christmas season. Utilising a mixture of typefaces we gave them a little vintage vibe through the combination of three sweet typefaces and we letterpress printed them on Herbie our 1972 Heidelberg Platen in 4 colour ways - Red, Orange, Turquoise and Silver on our 100% cotton ivory stock.

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?


  1. oh they are just adorable. I love receiving cards and this year I am making a real effort to send them out. I might have to get a few special ones though like the ones above for special people!

  2. So beautiful! This is the first bit of Chritmassy-ness that is starting to get me excited for the season!

  3. I haven't been very diligent with doing this each year either, but I am determined to do it this year!
    What is the customary time to send them out? Early December? Or closer to Christmas?


We adore your comments, please do say hello!
