A Letterpress Christmas 2013 : Rafftruck Designs

Letterpress Peace Holiday Card | Rafftruck Designs

I’m enjoying the sweet simplicity of Rafftruck Design’s letterpress holiday card collection, which features understated, modern greetings with whimsical touches and (lefty!) hand lettering. Some of my favorites are below and, because of my penchant for making up words, I have to smile every time I see “Chrismukkah”! Be sure to head over to Rafftruck’s shop to see the full collection.
