Happy Girls Day

Happy Girls Day!

In Hawaii, March 3rd is Girls Day, and the tradition comes from the Japanese hina matsuri, where, if I recall correctly, girls showcase their doll collection. We made a whole letterpress collection inspired by Japanese dolls and this festive day, and what better day to give you a preview of the design than Girls Day?

Here it is in production:


And here's a closeup shot of the A2 card:


We've yet to score and fold the cards, but here it is in all its cuteness.


The design was lovingly illustrated by yours truly and is a 3-color letterpress registration nightmare to print. But I do love the design so so much. I can't wait to finish it and pack it up so it can go to new homes! In the collection are Ready-to-Write Letterpress Invites, the A2 card pictured above, flat stationery, and gift enclosures. I've also been toying with thank you cards but we'll see. There is also a limited edition 8x10 art print that I'm working on with this collection. More info to come as I complete the collection! Enjoy!

that is a really cute design.
you print cards and then score them?
do you buy really big sheets of them and then cut them? I dont get why you do this after
