I’ve been meaning to print letterpress cards for different occasions and finally got around to printing birthday cards. I wanted to create something, I felt, was timeless. My only dilemma when it came down to the letterpress printing was which color to print these in. Originally, I was planning on printing them in a light pink color (since pink is one of my favorite colors), however, I already had black ink on the C&P so I figured, let’s see how it looks in classic black. I printed a few on the Pearl White cardstock and thought it had a vintage feel to it, which of course, I absolutely loved. I had some extra Fluorescent White cards and decided to print on those, too. The contrast of the black ink on the bright white paper just looked too good to resist. I ended up printing a bunch of them on both the Pearl White and Fluorescent White cards.
The letterpress cards shown are in an A6 size and in Fluorescent White
I’ll probably end up printing a few more in light pink…or even lavender…or both! So many choices!
Prior to printing these birthday cards, I was printing personalized stationery for my husband and I. Again, this was something I’ve been meaning to do for quite some time now and just haven’t really found the time to do them until recently. I’m not quite finished with those yet, but will be sure to post photos when they’re ready! The stationery is very simple and classic. I just need to clean the black ink off the C&P and put red ink on to finish them up. Which is probably something I will do…now. 🙂
