Custom letterpress Christmas party invitations + save the dates

We’ve been busy printing up custom holiday cards over the past few months, so with Christmas just around the corner we thought we’d share a few! We worked with our friends at Needle in a Haystack to create these custom letterpress Christmas party invitations and save the dates. Inspired by our Hamilton design, the invitations were printed on our ultra-thick 3-ply paper and edge painted in deep red for a festive touch.

Snowy + Sweet Letterpress Christmas Cards!

There’s no better compliment than when a store asks us to print their own cards. Julie from Sweet Paper in La Jolla, CA used our Pearl design in such a clever way. I think this might be my favorite Christmas card to date! I may have to steal the idea for myself 🙂 Thanks Julie!

Amazon Conservation Association Holiday Cards

We couldn’t let the holidays completely slip away without sharing the letterpress holiday cards we printed for the Amazon Conservation Association this year. ACA is one of the eco organizations we regularly partner with on special projects and pro bono printing throughout the year and these letterpress holiday cards were an especially fun project. Letterpress printed in rich green and blue inks to match their branding, we designed them greeting card style playing on one of the pretty floral motifs from our Everyday stationery collection. For more information about our eco commitment, read more about our environmental efforts and the organizations we support through donations via 1% For the Planet, pro bono printing and special projects.

Merry Christmas from Smock!

We can hardly believe that the holidays are here, but we’re delighted to wish you a Merry Christmas from everyone here at Smock! To ring the holidays in right, we couldn’t resist sharing one last custom letterpress holiday card we printed this year. This joyful design was sent to us by our friends at Byrd & Bleecker in Fort Worth and features cute hanging ornaments left blank so the family could adhere photos. Isn’t this just adorable? Thanks to Byrd & Bleecker and merry Christmas, one and all!
