Recipe Card Exchange

We're proud of our collaboration with 15 letterpress printers and designers on a project to promote the art of letterpress printing.  We hand-selected a different paper for each printer who was on their own to design and print a recipe card to be part of a set that can be collected at the show.  Amber Ellis-Seguine of Flywheel Press was the mastermind behind this project and, somehow, made it all happen in time for the show.

The cards were all amazing.  We were totally blown away and we're sure you will be too.  Check out the cards here.

Here's an article, "Recipe for Success", about the project as it appeared in the Spring 2011 Stationery Trends magazine).
