Printed the old-fashioned way on a Heidelberg press (using inked engravings physically pressed into the paper), these small letterpress notecards make an impression with their charming designs and quality production. Each set contains 10 cards (5 each of 2 designs) printed on heavy Mohawk stock, complemented with color-printed envelopes in a folded kraft box.
The creative director of Chronicle Books, Michael Carabetta is a passionate advocate for artists and independent printing. He conceived of these bold typographic designs with his own correspondence needs in mind—one reads "THX!" in tall blue letters; the other simply says "p.s." in the corner—and the set includes pale green envelopes.
