Lucky you! You've found my Eid cards! These cards are printed in A6 size, opening on the left side, Urdu-style :)
I am offering two purchase options. The first, 'to myself' will be posted to you first class in a C5 'do not bend' envelope with the envelope included for your use. The envelope may require tape to secure it as it navigates its way through the postal system. The second option, 'to someone else' allows you to send the card directly to someone else. There is space for you to include your message, which I will write out in hand and post according to your directions.
This print is designed by me and inspired by the kitsch aesthetic that was prominent in Pakistani greeting cards and advertisements up until the 1980s. I love the bright colours and shameless joy and exuberance of Pakistani iconography, which I have tried to capture in one card and I hope you love it too. The text at the top reads 'Eid mubarak' in Urdu typography.
Each card is printed using six layers of ink and finished with gold leaf embellishments, each one hand pressed - providing a truly unique finish to the colour and effect. There are two lines printed at the back of the card "lovingly handmade in London by Night Press". The gold leaf gilding is placed in different positions across the bouquet.
As each print is handmade, your purchase may not look as pictured. In some cases ink smudges and bleeding from the hand block have seeped into the inside of the card. Please bear this in mind when placing an order.
I have chosen this selection of cards for advertising to show you the vintage-style effect of the card and that the red block which makes the frame of the print does not always have a crisp press. To me this adds to the charm of the card, which doubles up as art work for your home.
My post days are on Tuesday or Friday, depending on when you check out. And if you're in an absolute rush, just send me a message and I'll post your print to you the following day when you check out with Domestic/International delivery upgrade, although with Eid so close now I will post your order to you as soon as possible. Please note that delivery to Europe and the USA takes approximately three weeks during the lockdown we're experiencing.
There was a problem calculating your postage. Please try again.

Absolutely loved the cards, can't wait to give them to my family! Would definitely buy more if there was more of a range for the vintage Pakistan aesthetic. Also got some free stickers which were very cute! Can't wait to see what else I want to order!!
I really love the Cards, there is so much love behind every piece. Sunbul added an extra print which was also very special and a handwritten Card + Stickers. My Grandpa is from Pakistan/Lahore and these little artpieces brought me a little closer to my roots. Thank you Sunbul :) i will look out for new art of yours and i wish you all the best.

I've bought from The Night Press before and am always blown away by the BEAUTIFUL packaging and attention to detail! It was also a delight to receive a couple of wee freebies and the kindest hand written note! I cannot recommend this shop highly enough, everything is beautifully made, thoughtfully packaged and delivered with love. Amazing <3
Absolutely beautiful, there’s clearly a lot of thought and love put into this shop I will definitely buy from again. Thank you so much.
