Olive green letterpress moving cards

When a stationery shop owner moves, you know they’re going to have stylish moving announcements! Recently we worked with Carolyn, owner of The Write Touch in Jacksonville, Florida, for her letterpress moving cards. The double-sided cards featured our Plaza calligraphy font on the front, with our lemons vintage print pattern adding a hint of flair to the back. Lined envelopes and corner rounding were chosen as finishing touches on these sophisticated cards, but our favorite detail has to be the petite paw print for Nicholas, Carolyn’s beloved golden retriever – so sweet!
