This set of eight letterpressed cards* is blind {without ink} printed on Crane's Lettra paper with matching envelopes. The cards are folded and measure 3 1/2" x 5 1/8" (4-bar).

Each set includes 2 of each phrase*

hello
xoxoxo
thank you
oh happy day

While experimenting with the possibilities on our platen press we have become quite fascinated with the ability to print without ink. The combination of the thick cotton paper and the power of the press allows one to press a noticeable design into the paper. Often this technique is called ‘blind letterpress’. The concept of Braille, a written communication for those with vision impairments is truly amazing. Through creative abstraction we were able to press the paper to reveal raised dots in the pattern of the corresponding phrases. ‘oh happy day’ is a pressed phrase but is also printed in Braille. At first the blind printing is not very visible but upon further investigation the design reveals itself through a visual and tactile sense. This ink-less note card is pressed on 110lb cotton stock with matching envelopes.

These cards were printed with love by hand on our antique Chandler & Price letterpress.
