letterpress christmas card

Last weekend, I worked on our christmas cards. I printed them using my new old printing press.

I splurged and used this paper from Crane's -- lettra 220lb weight -- which is a luxuriously thick 100% cotton paper. This paper is made specifically for letterpress.

It took me a weekend to finish them. I printed the first color (grey) on a Friday night, the second color (red) the following night, then mounted them on grey cardstock. I addressed all the envelopes on Sunday.
