$ 50.00

Stationery just for you... or a friend, family member, colleague, or anyone really!

Custom letterpress notecards are a perfect way to send quick thank you notes or catch up with old friends, and they make thoughtful gifts for an engagement or wedding celebration, birthdays, and other special occasions.

This is a set of letterpress notecards personalized with your initials, name, couple of names, or a short phrase handset in metal type and printed one at a time on lovely thick card stock on an antique printing press in a colour of your choice. The printing process transfers the ink to the paper by pressing the inked type into the paper surface leaving an impression that you can feel!

The images show a variety of options to give you an idea of how the cards will look. All available characters for the typeface and colour options for ink and envelopes are shown in the final images.

You choose...
1. Quantity (if you need a quantity other than those listed please send me a message and I’ll create a custom listing for you)
2. Text to be printed - this could be anything from initials to a full name, or even a short phrase but try to keep it under about 20 characters. Please be as specific as possible, using capital and lower case letters and appropriate symbols like “&" where necessary to indicate your preferences.
3. Ink colour (please note that the silver and gold ink options are metallic inks not foils, they have a sheen but are not super shiny)
4. Envelope colour

The typeface, in case you're wondering, is Bernard Modern Italic,  designed by Lucian Bernhard in 1937. It's a old-style decorative typeface with elegant curves and a romantic feel without being overly swirly.

Cards are printed specially for you after the order is placed and so it will be approximately 1-3 weeks before they ship. Smaller quantities usually ship on the quicker end of the spectrum since they take less time to print and I can often squeeze them into the schedule sooner. If you need them by a specific date contact me before ordering and I'll let you know if a faster turnaround is possible.
