Bespoke envelope lining

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:

Hand illustrated social stationery

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.

Stationery for ourselves

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:

Spectacle Notecards

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.
