New Cherry Blossom Personalized Letterpress Stationery

Celebrating the centennial of Tokyo's gift to Washington D.C. in 1912, the United States postal service has just recently issued this beautiful new pair of cherry blossom stamps. To honor the friendship between Japan and the United States, 3,000 cherry blossom trees was given to Washington, D.C. These new stamps are lovely and together, they feature a canopy of beautiful cherry blossoms above the tidal basin.

Newly printed, these fuschia pink letterpress printed cards feature a lovely border of cherry blossoms and your name. Using my 1900s' Chandler Price printing press, I print each card on plush white cotton paper one card at a time. It comes with matching pink envelopes. How wonderful to add a special touch by stamping it with the Cherry Blossom Tree Centennial stamps!
