It's that time of year again... at the office, we're looking into holiday cards to send out next month. This is my biggest source list to date, and I've found a LOT more designers and stores to include this year. Most of these are small companies that print by hand on the letterpress, so expect the quality and the prices to be higher than what you'd find at the corner drugstore.
What is letterpress?
It's the term used to refer to real, old fashioned printing, where a zinc plate, linoleum block, or movable type is inked and pressed into paper, leaving a strong image, often with an indentation from the pressure. A low-fi, DIY technique, it has become very popular among independent artists since the '90's who print far more than just cards, and is often referred to as the 'Small Press Movement'.
