Letterpressed AND clever, these design-themed valentines are the best! I can totally see these expanding into more cards and being mass-produced to be sold at every art store and printshop across the country. Bravo!

I love letterpress and also have an eco-friendly mindset as a designer. I wanted to create a self-promotion that would let my clients know how much I like working with them (what better time than Valentine’s Day!). After lots of thought, I settled on creating three Valentines Day cards that the client could reuse by passing out to their loved ones for the holiday. To incorporate my business services, I wrote phrases that would be fun to illustrate but that also were relevant to graphic and website design. I chose letterpress printing because I value the high-quality, authentic look it brings to a project.
