letterpress placecards


I also letterpressed these placecards when I was in Washington to use for Thanksgiving dinner. We ended up writing the name of each dessert on an individual card and placing it next to the dessert on the dessert table (I think we had at least 9 or 10 options including pumpkin pie, banana cream pie, apple pie, rasberry pie, pear crumble pie...)

To create:
- Create artwork in Illustrator and have a photopolymer plate made.
- I letterpressed the cards with a Vandercook SP-20 using Crane's Lettra Superwhite and dark brown ink.

Michelle! I love your blog! I showed some girls at work all the craetive things you have and we think it's adorable. I'm actually thinking of making those diamond glaze magnets. Do you happen to know of a link I could go to to make them? Or are they pretty simple? Thanks! Hope you're doing great!

Hi Ashley! Thanks for visiting my blog! The diamond glaze magnets are really easy. In the post, if you click on the word "these" it should take you to Amy Karol's tutorial on how she made them. Let me know if that doesn't work.
