Local Letterpress for MomAuthor:Lily Gahagan
I wasn’t lying when I said I’ll be doing it up big this Mother’s Day (May 9th, if you haven’t gotten your act together), and along with my ultimate gift extravaganza I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect card to convey my love for my mama. And what better way to do so than with one of my favorite mediums: Letterpress! I’ve been combing high and low for cards from CA-based printers, and here are my faves:
Keeping it simple, from Fugu Fugu Press in Pasadena.
A smattering of sweet options from San Francisco’s Hello!Lucky.
For all you former bad kids out there, from Lizard Press in San Francisco.
Ain’t it true? From Dutch Door Press in SF.
From Pup & Pony Press in Long Beach. Interior reads:
“I want to tell you here and now,
In simple words and quick,
You’re just the very swellest MUM
That anyone could pick!”
And two cards from out-of-staters that we love too much not to share:
Love the color combo used in the floral design on this card from Rifle Paper Co.
