Beautifully screen printed with vibrant pink and a hint a dark electric blue/turquoise and with the gold foil layered on top! Made the perfect birthday card for my old high school chum and a huge David Bowie fan!

These arrived really quickly! The card stock is thick and dark so you'll need to right kind of pen for them. But they look great!

Paleta Press goes above and beyond with their attention to detail and carefully packaged cards. I love my set of thank you cards and the rad vintage type she selected is spot-on! Thanks so much!
