This letterpress postcard was printed on watercolor paper. First, I hand dyed the card, so each card will be slightly different. Then I used lead type to print the card. The text refers to my dyeing process or information about the origin of the dye, presented in a fanciful manner. It was printed on a Chandler & Price clamshell press. This card is part of a signed and numbered edition of 50 cards. Card measures approximately 4" x 6" and comes to you in a protective plastic bag.
I have done the best I can to edit the photograph for true color, but please note the dyes change over time. Also, natural dyes may fade or darken when exposed to sunlight.
A note on shipping: you may notice that the international rates are very high. I'm sorry, this reflects current USPS pricing, which skyrocketed for international parcels this year. I am working on changing my shipping envelopes to hopefully qualify at first class letter rate. Unfortunately, that decision rests with the individual postal employees. If I manage to send your parcel for less money, I will refund the extra through paypal. I charge the cost of shipping + 50 cents for the envelope, which is my actual cost.
