Can you believe that this is the fifth year that I’m doing “A Letterpress Christmas”? Wow. Over the past several years, I’ve continued to be amazed by the new shops and talented creatives who have come into the letterpress niche, as well as by the level of design continually being produced by the more established letterpress shops, and I’m excited to continue the series this year.
This year’s first feature is on Cartoules Press’ wonderfully merry and bright holiday letterpress collection, which features letterpress cards and gift tags in both English and Greek. I love, love, love the vibrant cherry red and chartreuse color palette and the variety of designs available.
And I’m completely delighted by the fresh, modern holiday card designs that Cartoules is bringing to the Greek community. I don’t come across well-designed foreign language holiday cards too often (if you’ve spotted any others, please let me know!), so these are a breath of fresh air.
Typographic cards and tags read “Kala Xristougenna”, or “Merry Christmas”, and the ornament card reads “Kales Giortes”, or “Happy Holidays”.
