Cute card, it reminded me of my grandson and brought back many happy memories of him long ago! This was one of three wedding cards I purchased for my grandson and his new bride; they loved it!

About Eric Leland and his Manufactory...
It's been a long journey to get to where I am today, working full time in my basement and never, ever, ever wearing clothes that I can't get paint, grime, or ink stains on!
My design education began in 1996 at the North Carolina State University College of Design. There I learned, among other things, that there are many solutions to any design problem and it takes real persistence to uncover the best one. In 2001 I completed my Bachelor of Architecture degree.
After an internship in the North Carolina State Historic Preservation Office, I moved north to Baltimore, satisfying a lifelong itch to live in a city with no space between houses. I found employment at an architecture firm and from 2002 to 2007 I adjusted to professional life, learning to work with firm principals and clients to define problems and generate solutions. In 2007 I obtained architectural licensure from my native state of North Carolina.
However, also in 2007, I was overtaken both by wanderlust and by a growing realization that I was happiest when my work involved pencil and paintbrush. My wife and I took a leap across the Atlantic, and I enrolled in the postgraduate illustration program at University College Falmouth, in Cornwall, England. The course there emphasizes authorial practice - in a nutshell, taking responsibility for your own career - and I spent a year learning to generate projects from Cornwall's rich historic industrial landscape. I also saw a lot of rabbits! The following year, we moved on to Edinburgh, Scotland, where Anne completed a degree in architectural conservation and I mercilessly besieged old castles with my sketchbook. In 2009 we returned to Baltimore, and in 2010 I purchased and set up my first printing press in my basement. Since then, I have acquired more presses and moved to a larger, above ground space.
My Chandler and Price
My Chandler and Price New Style 10 x 15 dates from around 1935 or so. It has been with me since 2016 and it has become the real workhorse of the print shop!
My Craftsmen Superior
Acquired in 2012 as a cast-off from a middle school and suffering from a broken foot, missing parts and lots of rust, my sturdy little Craftsmen Superior press is now oiled up and in good working order.
My Nolan Press
Able to produce larger prints on its flat bed, but also requiring finicky hand inking, my Nolan proof press doesn't get quite as much of a workout as the C&P, but it's absolutely essential for books and art prints so I try to treat it well!
I am an illustrator and printmaker living and working in Baltimore, Maryland. My shop opened in January of 2011.

Rate increases have made it so that shipping a single card in a rigid, protective mailer at the first class package rate now costs me more than three dollars. However, the rates don't go up steeply from there. For orders of greeting cards within the United States, the first card will incur a shipping charge of $3.25, but additional cards in the same order will ship for no additional shipping fee. SO - it pays to buy more than one!
SHIPPING IN GENERAL:
I will ship your order within the time period specified on each listing. For most products, and for most of the year, this will be within three business days, but for certain items and at certain time periods (holidays and vacations) shipping may take longer - when extended shipping times are in effect, you'll see this noted on the shipping times with each listing. I ship my products in sturdy mailers via USPS first class mail, or via Priority mail for larger or more expensive items - see the individual listing for shipping options.
Due to increasing costs and complications, I am sorry to say that I am no longer shipping items to addresses outside the United States and Canada. Any customs duties for Canadian orders are the responsibility of the buyer.
I want every order to arrive in good shape in the mailbox of a happy customer, but I know that some times bad things happen in transit. If something has gone wrong, please let me know. In cases of loss or damage, I'll either grant a refund or dispatch a replacement depending on your wishes and what I have in stock. If items are damaged in shipping, I may ask you to return them to me at my expense so that I can see if I need to adjust my packaging.
