Description

There are no words for how we feel about silent films at starshaped press. We were able to track down the antique metal typefaces used for the film's intertitles, and we've created these cards in our Silents Are Golden series to show them off!
They are handprinted with antique type and ornaments on steel gray paper (you can either use black or silver pens on it), with silver ink. There's a light varnish-like tint behind the silver to make the frame pop. The card folds at the top and measures 3.5x5". Comes with a light gray envelope in a clear sleeve.
This listing is for one card, but we're happy to put together sets.
Make Colleen Moore proud and send a note to a friend today.


____________________________________

Starshaped Press is an old school letterpress shop, meaning that we focus on the craft of good design and great typography. We work strictly with antique wood and metal typefaces for printing, as well as hand carved linoleum cuts, meaning that there is NOT a heavy deboss in the paper, like modern letterpress work. Instead, we endeavor to showcase all of the flaws, inconsistencies and inherent charm of materials that printed for 50 to 100 years before we came along, and, if we do our job correctly, will continue to print when we're long gone.
