Floral Wrapped Letterpress Cards

Floral Wrapped Letterpress Cards | The Hungry Workshop

They’re cards. They’re gifts. They’re totally cool! Wrapped Cards from The Hungry Workshop capture the idea that the sentiment is often just as important as the gift that you’re giving and that the simple act of giving a card can be a gift, in and of itself. These clever, gatefold cards are each “tied” with a bow and “wrapped” in a beautiful, Australian floral pattern letterpress printed in magenta + turquoise. Each card opens in the middle to reveal your message inside.

Available for purchase in a bundle of three or as single cards.

House Rules Letterpress Cards

Banshee Press’ “House Rules” letterpress card series showcases the mischievous side of classic playing card characters and, whoa, I wouldn’t want to meet these guys, gal, or dog in a dark alley! The fantastic, illustrated cards would be great to send to a card playing friend with an edgy sense of humor, and I think they’d also look awesome framed and hung on the wall of a game room or a man cave. Check ‘em out:
