Joy rune: I am as happy to see you as ravens when they see fresh, warm corpses.
Individual hand-printed letterpress card with rune and notable Viking quote and phrase in Old Norse script surrounding a copper foil Horn of Odin with English-text quoted underneath.

Quote:
Joy rune: I am as happy to see you as ravens when they see fresh, warm corpses.

A labor of love, each card is letterpress printed by a true master printer, on an over 60 year old press from Heidelberg Germany, using the same techniques Gutenberg employed almost 600 years ago. We believe each card is a work of art, a piece of history, and perfect for any situation.

The cards are printed on hand-made cotton linen paper with plant-based inks, “aged” to look and feel authentic, and a bold copper foil to accentuate the Horn of Odin. Note: due to the nature of this hand-made paper, it is a bit thinner and lighter than a normal card stock, and natural variations in color, edge straightness, and slight marks from the paper making process may be present.

Details:
Card size: Approximately 4.25 x 5.5 inches (sizes vary slightly due to variations in the hand-made paper)

In the box:
1+ or 6 cards with JOY quote
1+ or 6 envelopes

Note: Product photos and video may show additional card designed quotes, but all cards in this set contain the JOY quote.
