letterpress printed on 110# lettra paper, 1/0 inks (registration black) – sold as a set of 50. These were another set of calligraphy calling cards, however the client wanted to have the cards typeset instead of calligraphy. When sending out small sets of calling cards, this is our standard packaging so you can cart them around easily in a clutch, purse or messenger bag. To get yourself a set of letterpress calling cards, check them out and customize to your heart’s content!

These calling cards shipped out recently and were done in the Spencerian Script Calligraphy. I love seeing all the different names that we do for calling cards. They feel sort of like a fingerprint. While the design is the same between cards, they all still feel so unique because of the nuances of the flourishes and swashes within the lettering. I think in another life I would have loved to be a calligrapher, such a beautiful art that I have so much respect for! These were letterpress printed on 110# lettra paper, with Gravely/Cement ink and a red edge-paint. A great way to still get letterpress cards if you are on a budget, these are one of my favorite products to produce! Get a set here for the new year or gift them for the holidays.
