Handmade by Beth Wicklund of Minneapolis, MN.

Letterpress is a traditional printing process that uses force to press an image or text into the paper.  This creates a textured surface that can’t be reproduced with modern printing.  

Each card is printed individually by feeding it into the press.  Her printing press is about 100 years old and weighs about one ton (literally!).

Each color on a card must be printed separately after changing the ink color on the press.  To create the text and images, Beth uses wood and lead type, carved linoleum blocks, and photopolymer plates.
