A sneak peek at my new Hawaiian monstera leaves letterpress cards. These larger sized cards are 4.25 inches x 5.5 inches folded, 8.50 x 5.5 inches when opened flat. I hand illustrated these monstera leaves, worked on them in photoshop, and had them processed into plates. After hand mixing the ink for a golden green color, I printed the leaves and text on creamy ecru 100% cotton paper. The paper is thick with 110 lb. weight with a slight texture. Monstera grows all over the islands and adds to the lush green beauty of our tropical paradise in Hawaii. I'll have these in my shop soon.
Holiday shopping has begun and Etsy featured myPersonalized Blind Debossed Letterpress cards in their Etsy Finds Cyber Monday gift ideas! Such excitement to have many new visitors to my shop. Although the sale on these cards ended yesterday, I have extended my Holiday Sales for sets of 3 and sets of 4 personalized cards at my shop. Sale ends on Dec.4.

It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas. There's no snow or chill in the air, but when I'm printing these cards, I'm feeling the holiday spirit! Both of these holiday cards may be personalized, but order them early to avoid the holiday rush.
Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving day with family and friends. And can you believe that Christmas is about 30 days away after Thanksgiving? How quickly time flies. You can avoid the crowded malls and take advantage of Black Friday and Cyber Monday specials at Etsy. My Aloha Letterpress Shop is having a special now and through the weekend with a 10% discount on any 3 or 4 sets of holiday cards or personalized letterpress stationery.
The photos above are just a few examples of some of the personalized cards that are available.

Deck the halls... with Christmas letterpress cards! Christmas is around the corner and I'm having some fun with printing these new cards.
Golden pine branches adorn the first set of holiday cards with a lovely "Season's Greetings" in a fanciful script. These seem to evoke such peace and warmth.
The other set features Santa's Ornament with a Season's Greetings and helps to convey your cheerful holiday thoughts. Both holiday cards are now available at my Aloha Letterpress shop.
