Happy Fridays: Lovely Letterpress Roundup!

After our popular giveaway last week I thought it might be fun to post some letterpress inspiration on the blog this week! I have compiled some examples of gorgeous letterpressed business cards and calling cards below. Perhaps it may even sway those who have been too timid to give letterpress a try in the past. Everyone needs at least one piece of letterpress in their life…believe me 🙂
