Why We Love This

This grey card is a mini work of art. The tiny gold owl, an original design, symbolizes guidance and wisdom. We think it’s a thoughtful way to give a gift or reach out and say hello to a friend near or far.

Story

Letterpress is the use of blocks of moveable letters, symbols, and numbers, pressed onto paper. It dates back to the mid-15th century, when it was the go-to method of printing books, papers and documents. By the 19th century, speedier, more modern methods replaced letterpress, but it was still widely used into the 20th century and today, is mostly used by artists. The makers of this tiny, flat note card paid attention to every detail: The corners are softly rounded, the paper is a sturdy 300-gram card stock, and the envelopes have a honeycomb print inside. Sold in a pack of eight, these cards are approximately 2.5” x 3.5”.
