Christmas Card 2011

Ah! a Blog again!
This is what our Christmas Card is like this year.
This year I thought I would make something beautiful. What I did not anticipate was it jumping the gun and kick starting out plans to launch the stationery company next year. We have already sold 30 packs of them. And of the 30, 15 packs had to be opened up and hand addresses and messages written in.
The cards are A4 folded down to A5, portrait. 350 GSM, GFSmith Colourplan Racing Green. Envelopes are C5, deep wallet flap, Colourplan Bright Red.
The cards are for sale – they are £25 for a pack of 5. And we also offer a hand addressing service is a script of your choice. Usually it is our Quick Script III (the slanted quick script) in white ink on the red envelopes. But we have used Copperplate in white as well.
The inside can be personalised in gold ink with a message of your choice – for an added fee. Cost depends on the volume of text to be written in.
So here is the process at Mount Street

But the true joy of the cards is seeing them from a distance, the column of holly looks like it is moving up the centre of the card. Naturally this is tricky to see as the engraving of the front is so raised it is difficult to put it down, feeling the texture between your fingers is really something special.
