Letterpress Love

By Bertyc @bertyc
I'm a massive fan of letterpress and traditional print methods.
Previously the sort of person who would buy greetings cards last minute and sometimes - gasp - a supermarket, now buying good quality cards is something I think to be a lovely gesture. Although I've had a stab at making some, it's not very easy to make them look good.  In my eyes, there is nothing more beautiful than a letterpress greeting card.  You know it's made with precision, skill and craftsmanship.
Here are a few of my favourites:
