Making Christmas Cards

It’s not too early to make Christmas cards right? I just wanted to make simple cards and to utilize our letterpress. We have an old school letter press at our studio where the graphics department threw out and the printmaking department salvaged it. All the letters are scattered and disorganized, so it took me 20 minutes to find all the alphabets to ‘Merry Christmas’.

I soaked some Fabriano Rosapino and laid delicate paper on top and ran it through the etching press to bind the paper together and dried under weight. Then lightly wet the paper again to run it through the letter press.


Cutting the excess paper off. The texture doesn’t show up well in the picture.


When I’m about to fold it, I realized I printed it upside down, hahahaha.


Oh well. Vertical card it is.
