Custom print: Number 1

Custom Print: Number 1

Anita from UK wanted a custom print that has the number “1” on chipboard with white ink. I love printing on chipboard and the color combination! Another fun custom project, thank you, Anita!

The wood type number 1 on Vandercook press, all locked up and inked, ready to print.

Custom Print: Number 1

To make the white come out stronger, I ran the chipboard 3-4 times…

Custom Print: Number 1

It is 7.5cm x 7.5cm. Yes, we can do it in cm, too :)

Custom Print: Number 1


Printed more “thank you” cards with wood types for my shop the other day and look what happened! “E” was backward :) It happens sometimes due to the mirrored wood type blocks, but thought it was fun to share it here. I flipped the “E” after this so just this only one.

In case you never seen this, this is something I print for my customers. I write a thank you note for each customer on the back of the card. You will receive one with your order*!

*not with poster orders, unfortunately… these cards are too stiff to include into a tube mailer :(

I have “Hello!” “Enjoy!” and “Thank U!” now. Let’s see which one you will receive…

Enjoy & Smile

It was time to restock my chipboard “thank you” cards for my shop… (You can see my Hello! cards and Thanks! cards by clicking the links) I actually printed “Enjoy” cards before, but never had a chance to share on Heart Fish and I printed some more… and this time, “Smile” cards, too :) When you order something from my shop, you will get one! With my hand-written thank you notes!

Type setting — printing 2 cards at the same time. I was working with some metallic ink (ohh, I can’t wait to show you guys what I was working on) and I loved the metallic blue ink so much that I decided to print my cards with it, too.


Everything looks so lovely on chipboards, don’t you think?


and here they are.






Enjoy and Smile! :)
