I almost want to use these greeting cards for decorating instead of shipping them out in the post, but then nobody would have the pleasure of ripping open an envelope and finding a perfect bit of letterpress in it—and that would be a shame.

Project Description

Summer Studio Stationers is a new line of printed goods by Vancouver-based designer Tom Froese and Kingston-based Everlovin' Press. In a sea of hammy puns, trite slogans and cat cartoons, Summer Studio aims to bring something new to the greeting card market: handsome design, high craft, and quirky wit.

Production Lesson(s)

Salty old seadogs that we are, we should have known that details under a certain point size don't hold up under the pressure of letterpress. We had to redo one of our plates quite deep into the process when we discovered a tiny detail wasn't coming through at all! ”
