Friday's inspiration

On my way to deliver an order of cards today, I popped into one of my favourite paper goods store to immerse myself in beautiful note books and journals, greeting cards, garlands, books, and lots of other bits and pieces. I could have come home with a whole bunch of stuff, but thankfully I only came home with this :)

Double Rainbow Card!

We have a NEW card in store!

Double Happiness is the newest card to join our growing range of letterpress cards.
We printed this card in our own little workshop with four colours onto recycled paper,
and we are truly happy with the results.  Every time we put a new design through the press I am totally amazed by what this little press is capable of achieving. I think it would be fair to say that its our best print run to date!

To think that this old little press is the work horse of our business, and capable of producing such beautiful results just tickles me pink :)

You can purchase this card via our on-line store, Blackbird Corner, Inkwell Letterpress Boutique, with other independent retailers to follow :)
