While the card is lovely, it is really too small in size.

About

Missive Letterpress & Design

MISSIVE is a San Francisco Bay Area letterpress studio founded by designer Lisa Willis in 2008, when a creative outlet became a passion. With a mission to bring stylish correspondence to mailboxes everywhere, the offerings have expanded to include greeting cards, social stationery, announcements and more.

Each piece is hand-printed on antique presses dating from 1912, using luxurious cotton and recycled content papers. With a less-is-more aesthetic and a focus on elegant letterforms, vintage imagery and classic design, our collection of charming letterpress cards and social stationery is intended to delight both the writer and the recipient.

Why Missive? Missive is an old word, dating from the 15th century. From its etymology in Medieval Latin "mittere"—to send—it has come to mean a note or written message and evokes both intrigue and romance, a fitting term for the art of letterpress.

Additional policies and FAQs
About letterpress:
Letterpress has a lovely tactile quality, unique from any other printing method. For those unfamiliar with the process of letterpress printing, a raised printing plate is inked and then an impression is made on paper, resulting in a relief image. Due to the hand-printed process, there may be subtle variations in ink coverage, impression and/or registration, unmistakable characteristics which lend charm and authenticity to the printed piece.

Customization:
Everyone deserves something extra special sometimes. If you are interested in another color, quantity, or adding personalization to an item you see in the shop, contact us at hello [!at] missivepress.com for details order minimums and pricing. Custom and bulk orders cannot be returned or credited.
