Modern and a little bit quirky, we love these custom holiday cards that we worked on with our friends at Nest Paper Studio in Oxford, Mississippi. They use motifs from our Everyday collection, offset printed in pewter and red inks. They cheekily wish family and friends a holiday that is “off the chain,” a playful season’s greeting that we can’t help but love.
We continue our tale of a letterpress Christmas with these pretty photo cards printed for Anne Grace Designs in Dallas. This custom design features two cards fastened with a grommet on the upper corner. The design is printed in red and olive inks and features our bambine pattern in red on the front and back of the second card. The family is attaching a photo to the second card for a lovely, custom letterpress photo card. We love how bright and festive this design is, perfect for the holiday season.
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.)
Brought to us by our friends at Alphagraphics in Chicago, the first runner-up in our Smock Design Contest is this truly customized letterpress social note in our Lashar design. It features fabulous edge painting, pattern backing and a gorgeous lined envelope for a look that is totally luxe and completely personalized. Letterpress printed in red and pool inks, the card itself showcases gorgeous red patterned backing in our champlain pattern. It’s edge painted in espresso and then paired with an envelope lined in our payette pattern in espresso ink. This is truly a piece where every detail was considered – the front of the card even features beautiful hand calligraphy in red ink. Smock’s Creative Director, Amy Graham Stigler, fell in love with this customization for it’s unique play between pattern and color. We’d love to be the recipients of one of these amazingly beautiful letterpress correspondence cards!
Thank you to Alphagraphics for sending us such a truly unique creation!
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.
We love this one color classic true rich bright red for a letterpress holiday card. This design is based on our Vettore letterpress wedding invitation, usually two color, but perfect in one color RED. Sent to us by RSVP Today.
