Elum Journal

Looking for the perfect holiday gift for your journal writing friends? Well, look no further than Elum’s gorgeous fabric covered offerings. I love the custom designs that grace the covers. $21.99 each.

Elum also has lovely desk sets — a complete collection of beautifully designed letterpress note cards and envelopes in a sophisticated storage box. Each set contains over 300 pieces and contains everything one will need (minus stamps and a pen) to keep up with correspondence. $150.00 per set.

Elum Desk Set

Psst…you’ll want to check out their letterpress holiday cards while you’re there; however, many designs seem to already be sold out, so grab them up while you can!

Redbean Holiday Cards

Redbean Holiday Cards

I’m digging these fresh, modern holiday card designs from Redbean. A must see collection for those with an eye for design. My favorites include (clockwise, from top left) Snowflakes, Robins, Reindeer, and Woods. $18.00 per set of 12 of a single design.

The cards are also printed using environmentally responsible inks, which makes them a great choice for those looking to shop “green” for the holidays.

Redbean Holiday Gift Tags

Redbean also has an eye candy-licious collection of holiday gift tags. Alas, they’ve already sold out. But you can still look!

A Letterpress Christmas 2007

Fugu Fugu Letterpress Christmas Cards

Charming and oh so kawaii letterpress holiday cards from Fugu Fugu Press, a husband and wife team out of Pasadena, California. Alfie the snow dog looks quite content, and who can pass up friendly-faced chestnuts? Psst, even though Halloween has passed, you have to see their skeleton card. Brilliant design.

Clockwise, from top left: chestnuts, alfie, kobito elves, and happy hanukkah. $16.00 for a set of 8 of one design.
