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 🙂

She has been an avid animal rights supporter for many years and presently works with a local rescue organization fostering and rehabilitating cats. When she is not designing or sketching, you can find her crafting or in the garden!  She is also an entertainment junkie and watches entirely too many movies and television shows.
