The trouble is, letterpress cards can get expensive and minimum quantities are often too high for individuals or independent businesses. By keeping these designs simple and hand setting the type I can offer a small minimum order - 50 cards - at a low price (convo me if you need more). These cards make a great gift for that small business owner or paper goods enthusiast in your life.
These cards feature a decorative Gingham-ish border. (See my other listings for other border options or borderless cards). For this border, please choose whether you would like mitered corners or straight corners (see photos for examples). You can read more about this and my other borders here:
Here's how it works... You choose the typeface (see photos for options) and color and how you want the text oriented (centered, left, or right), include the text you want in the "comments to seller" or a convo, and I'll hand print your cards. That's all. Easy!
**Please note that while the photos show just a single line of text, you're not at all limited to that. These can work as full business cards with all of your contact information, business name, etc.**
If you have type size or other requirements or requests, let me know, otherwise I will set your text to best fit the card and emphasize your name and/or company name.
If you're looking for something more customized, convo me to discuss the particulars.
To sum up:
* Pick a typeface/font
* Pick a color
* Decide how you want the text positioned
* Pick mitered or straight corners
* Place your order and tell me all of the above in the "comments to seller".
* Wait for your new letterpress printed business cards to arrive and then start impressing people!
