Blog > Letterpress holiday cards, from Etsy

Letterpress (the magic art of relief printing with a press + movable type) holds a very special place in my heart. I love to stroll my fingers on the paper and feel the reliefs, knowing they were made through the love and hard work of a very patient person.

It turns out there are tons of patient, creative people with antique presses out there, as I found out while surfing Etsy… So many in fact, that it was nearly impossible to resist the temptation of stretching this post to include just another card… :)

So here you go, a post with a selection my favorite holiday cards, from the hands of the letterpressers of the world. Enjoy!
