New: Love Themed Letterpress Alphabet Greeting Cards

Yesterday was my first day of printing in 2010! I must admit… I had missed it so much! So happy that I get to print again :)

Keep that Valentine’s Day is right around the corner (can you believe it?) in mind, I printed 4 more letterpress Alphabet Greeting cards — all LOVE themed! I really enjoyed printing them and here are some behind the scene photos…

I decided to print all in red, one of my favorite colors and the color of love…
Setting wood type blocks and the polymer plates 2 at a time:

Checking impressions and adjusting placements:

Put red ink and…

print away.

2nd set — setting wood type blocks and the plates in the same position from the 1st set, but since the letters are in different width, adjusting a little here…

and print them away.

2nd color — I hand-mixed nice chocolate brown :)

Adjusting the placements… very important…

looking good :)

printing printing printing!

and here are the final products:

V is for Valentine:

L is for LOVE:

(I wanna frame this one — all the alphabet card is frame-able in US standard 5×7 frame — FYI)

X is for XOXO:

Lots of nice wood type texture on letter X.

I is for I Heart You:

I hope you like them! :)
