So here’s the deal: show us something that includes letterpress and we’ll buy it. Seriously, it may be an addiction, but there is something so luxurious about high quality paper and relief printing, we just can’t get enough of it. While letterpress was a common form of printing from the mid-15th century until around the 19th century, it is currently experiencing an artisanal revival. We’ve been seeing lots of it on Pinterest and Etsy, and a few of our favorite letterpress items are gathered in the week’s Etsy Finds. Cute birthday notes, desk calenders, or coasters to serve some cocktails – it’s all there!
Hawaii Letterpress Printed Map by Quaillane Press
If you have a gallery style print wall somewhere in your home, a map like this would be the perfect addition. OR if you plan on surprising that special someone with an amazing trip this christmas, why not use a framed letterpress map of the holiday destination as a voucher? We’d certainly love to find one of them under the christmas tree.
Banner Letterpress Birthday Card by Thimble Press
Not only do we have a great appreciation for pretty wrapped presents, but we also love cute cards to go along with them. This letterpress-version with gold sparkles and a banner that reads “happy birthday” is simple perfection!
2014 Letterpress Desk Calender by Lineville Letterpress
Do you remember our favorite Etsy picks for our dream office? Well, cute little somethings for our desks are definitely part of the deal, and a desk calender would be perfect next to our computers, right?
Letterpress Business Cards by Cottonflower Press
Ok, so here’s a small confession: even before The Daily Dose ever went live, we always dreamt of letterpress business cards. That is until we came to realize the price of those pretty babies … definitely not budget friendly, but we may just splurge on 10 or so.
Pink Line Letterpress Coasters by Thimble Press
As you guys know, we have a weakness for pretty cocktails, and all the things that come with them – including pretty coasters! In our Happy Hour Etsy Picks you guys already saw the “cheers letterpress coasters” we’re loving, and this pink option is just as lovely.
Letterpress Print by Heartfish Press
We love sprucing up our homes with fun prints, either gathered in a cluster above our favorite dresser, or a single one on the nightstand. And we love those prints even more if they’re inspirational, like this “live what you love” letterpress print in a bright and cheerful yellow.
