These hand-printed postcards featuring quirky letterpressed illustrations make an imaginative set of stationery ideal for an unlikely or creative writer.
Created as a fun spin-off to a new line of greetings cards, these whimsical postcards feature intricate hand-drawn illustrations, which have been letterpressed in black ink to make a tactile impression. Get creative with these cards: use the knife & fork card to invite someone to dinner or the two arrows when you want to drop someone a quick line. Or just send them for the pleasure of writing on high quality stationery with the purpose of making somebody smile! The intricate line drawings are elegant in understated black, making them ideal for a wide range of people and occasions.
This set of six hand printed postcards with drawings of a quill & ink, two oars, knife & fork, pen, tape measure and arrows letterpressed in black come with matching craft envelopes.
The illustrations have been hand-drawn before being turned into letterpress plates and hand printed onto an A6 (105x152mm) 100% cotton postcard by Rachel, using her century old letterpress, which lives in Brixton. The letterpress plates are inked and each piece of card is fed through the press, piled and packaged by hand. The finished product is well worth the hard work and elbow-grease: luxurious cards with ornate designs impressed on the surface. Letterpress is a craft and therefore each print can vary so that each one is unique. Any slight imperfections are part of the charm of the letterpress process.
This set, complete with 100gsm craft envelopes, comes wrapped in a vibrant cobalt ribbon. Your items will be posted to you in a sturdy envelope, ensuring your order reaches you in the high quality it was made.
Prickle Press is committed to using eco-friendly inks, paper, packaging and cleaning materials, as well as producing products of exquisite quality. Both the card and envelopes used in this set are FSC certified materials, which means they are sustainably sourced and won’t harm our lovely planet. The 360gsm 100% cotton paper is tree-free and made from the remnants of the cotton mills running in Britain.
