'Hugs' Letterpress Card
Spread some love with a sweet letterpress card by Julie Belcher of Pioneer House. Hand printed from antique wood type in red and white ink on 100% recycled kraft card stock with a matching recycled kraft envelope. You could just as easily frame these single-sided flat cards as mail them – any friend (or Valentine) would be thrilled to receive one.
Card size: 4 1/8 x 9 1/2 in (#10 envelope)
Julie Belcher is an Appalachian artist, dedicated handmade advocate, and appreciator of that which can be made new and useful once more. She studied architecture and graphic design before helping to launch the hand-set letterpress revival over 2 decades ago, while scavenging to purchase and restore vintage printing presses long forgotten throughout the South.
Julie is the owner and creative director of Pioneer House, a printmaking studio in Knoxville, TN, where she hand pulls her letterpress pieces from antique typography and carved imagery.
