Pressed love - letterpress business cards
I love paper, I have a small addiction to touching, holding and rubbing it. mmmm the texture, weight, crispness or waffly goodness. I love it. When I started Ampersand Grey this year I knew I was going to get letterpress business cards. It was on my life list after all! So when the wonderful people at Oh Happy Day! had a promotion on for letterpress cards in one color I jumped. Literally jumped OUT OF MY CHAIR to seal the deal. They had sunny yellow as one of the ink choices. Please? that’s perfect!!!!
They came packaged so lovely. I wanted to tear into them so bad, but I had to photograph them first. Very clever them putting a teaser card on the outside – it sustained me.
Aren’t the beautifully dimpled and pressed? I just love them so much.
Then I hand painted the edges yellow! yay. I’m having a hard time giving them away, which is obviously stupid of me… they are indeed business cards after all. perhaps I’ll come up with a questionnaire to deem people “card worthy” YAY
