Ginkgo Leaves: Letterpress Flat Cards & Envelopes (6ct)
A simple statement of winter. Two graceful birches in a snowy, white forest.
We were inspired to create this design by a night hike through snowy mountains. The striking contrast of trees against snow was breathtaking.
To make this set of flat cards, I created an original snowy birches illustration first in pen and ink, that we converted into a raised image printing plate. Next, we mixed a warm silvery grey ink and trimmed down our paper. We then set up the press, inked up our rollers, registered the design and then printed each card, one-by-one using our hand-fed,100 year old Chandler & Price letterpress. Then we cleaned up the press and started the process again for the back. Finally we trimmed each card and packaged them up with a matching square flap envelope.
The result is a perfect for your daily correspondence or a wonderfully chic update to the traditional holiday greeting.
