Classic letterpress printed note cards make great, custom wedding gifts. There's nothing nicer than receiving a handwritten note in the mail from after attending a wedding. Check out the Social Stationery section of our website for different designs for your next order.
Letterpress coasters are such a fun way to commemorate an important event. They're great for any celebration, whether it be a 60th birthday party or an announcement for a wedding yet to come. They can be used as a cute keepsake for guests, as well as a nice way to protect your coffee table.

We printed a selection of social stationery for a newly-married couple. The clients selected a few different designs and cardstocks. To add another layer of customization, they selected a beautiful printed paper from Paper Source and we used it to line their envelopes.
This is a great option to add individuality to your stationery. It adds some lovely visual appeal as the recipient opens the envelope and also complements the ink used for the letterpress printing.
Most of our printing is custom: our clients love having personalized items with their name/monogram or other individual details included. And for an additional bespoke element, how about choosing your own paper to line envelopes? You can go for something simple in a single color or choose a really unique fine paper with a pattern or design. We love how the ink color used on this thank you card is picked up in the verdant lining paper used for the envelopes:
Sometimes clients ask us to include an illustration that they provide on their printed materials. As long as the design is suitable for letterpress, we are happy to do this. It's always great for us to see the work of other artists and craftspeople. We printed these pretty notecards which feature a hand drawn illustration of the client's home. These look really smart in cool gray ink and they're extremely personal and bespoke.
Every so often, we print stationery for ourselves. Whether it's a new set of Sesame Letterpress business cards or notecards with our name at the top, it's always a treat to experiment with some of the layouts and fonts that we regularly work with. Breck was in need of a new set of social stationery so she designed a really lovely, elegant layout:
These are printed in our saturated black ink, using Carolyna font. We love how these have a really strong look while also featuring a few little flourishes and embellishments. So simple and so perfect. Here's a close up of the printing:
We've added a gorgeous new design to our line of notecards. We decided to go for something bright and bold and just plain awesome.
We love how the thick type looks in this bright red and the chevron envelope lining just adds another pop of pattern.
Here's a close up of the font and impression:
We recently discovered a gorgeous new font. You may recognize it from the recent blog post about my bike-themed wedding invitations. It's proven really popular with lots of our wedding clients so we designed a simple, striking new personalized notecard which features the font.
We love how the font mimics handwriting but is also contemporary and refined. We think it looks great in a vivid hue, like this bright turquoise.
We've been experimenting with a few new fonts lately. We love discovering typefaces that are a little unusual and creative. Here are some photos of one of our most recent notecard designs. It plays around with a really unique caps font called 'strangelove' (we adore the name nearly as much as the font!). It just needed the candy stripes on either side to make this a lovely, whimsical notecard.
And here it is in bright yellow:
The lined envelopes just add the final, perfect burst of color for these cards!
Often when clients discuss their personalized stationery with us, we try to encourage them to include a motif or image that represents them. Sometimes this will be something related to their job (a pen and inkpot for a writer or a hammer and nails for someone who works in construction or woodwork). Or, it might be something more related to their hobbies (a camera for someone interested in photography perhaps). We love these notecards because the client has chosen an image which literally captures one of his defining accessories: a pair of bold glasses! Teamed with a bright lined envelopes these are just super.
