We’re going to take you on a bit of a holiday adventure this week! With just a couple of weeks left to take advantage of our free envelope printing promotion on custom holiday orders, we thought we’d share a handful of the incredible letterpress holiday cards we’ve been printing this year. Nothing gets us excited for the holidays more than a really beautiful letterpress card, like this custom design featuring the crochet motif from our Smock Everyday collection as pretty snowflakes. Printed in silver and navy inks, this lovely customization came to us from our friends at Kate’s Paperie at their Midtown location. Still on the hunt for the perfect custom holiday cards? Our holiday promotion is good on orders placed between now and December 1!
Do you hear what we hear? It’s that time of year again! As we prepare for the holidays, we’re downright joyful to be introducing our newest holiday collection. From letterpress holiday cards to pretty and colorful offset holiday notes, from festive holiday gift wrap to letterpress photo cards and letterpress gift tags, we’ve got the perfect holiday paper goods for your season’s greetings in new colors and new styles for the 2010 holiday season. All of our new designs are available now so start your holiday shopping today!
Today we’re excited to introduce our first ever holiday promotion! Between now and December 1, 2010 all Smock custom letterpress holiday orders will receive free printing on our luxury bamboo envelopes. All you have to do is purchase blank envelopes, fill out a coupon with your local Smock dealer and we’ll do the rest at no charge. In need of a little holiday inspiration? We’ve got you covered with this custom letterpress holiday design brought to us by Salutations in Charlotte, North Carolina, one of our favorites so far this season.
Printed in red ink, these fun letterpress holiday cards feature our Lashar design from our wedding collection with festive patterned backing in our kincaid pattern in grass and showcasing our new Harrison calligraphy font. A custom letterpress gift tag is a sweet little accompaniment, perfect for wrapping holiday gifts with a personalized touch. (Shown below with our Savoy lokta paper gift bag.)
With the holidays swiftly approaching, we were recently contacted by two of our fabulous Smock retailers about contributing some Smock goodies for holiday events being hosted at their stores. Naturally, we couldn’t resist getting in on the holiday action. At Smock, we believe in giving back at the holidays and throughout the year so we were excited for the opportunity to help our stores out this holiday season.
We sent these little bundles, featuring a few of our letterpress holiday cards and letterpress gift tags, to our friends at Salutations in North Carolina where they were hosting a holiday open house at each of their stores in Charlotte and Chapel Hill. Guests to the event had to bring non-perishable food items to donate to the local food pantry in order to gain admittance to the event. We’re delighted to have been a part of such a fabulous event!
We also happily sent some of our double-sided 100% post consumer recycled gift wrap and letterpress gift tags to Broadway Paper in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Broadway Paper’s holiday open house is being held this Saturday, November 14th – you can visit their website and the Broadway Paper blog for more details if you’re in Wisconsin and would like to attend.
What are you doing to get in the holiday spirit? We’d love to hear about the fabulous events you’re hosting or attending this holiday season!
We’re getting in the holiday spirit over here at Smock, thanks to snow, 4 degree mornings, and….some great custom holiday cards that are leaving our shop! Check this one out — the envelope liner (geneva pattern) + backing (seneca pattern), both in red, just made us swoon. What a cool combination. This card came to us by our friends at Cotton Idea Studio in Laguna Beach, California.
