Delicate dragonfly personalized letterpress stationery

With its gossamer wings, a trio of dragonflies are featured in these newly printed personalized letterpress cards. These dragonflies are blind debossed (inkless impression) onto thick white cotton cover weight paper for a lovely tactile appeal. I love the fine details of these dragonflies and complemented with your name, it makes for delightful stationery!  

Did you know that dragonflies only eat when they are flying? They catch their prey in the air by grasping it with their feet. They are also among the first winged creatures to evolve about 300 million years ago!  In Japan, the dragonfly is a symbol of happiness, courage and power.

Whimsical Octopus Personalized Letterpress Stationery

With graceful tentacles waving, these personalized letterpress stationery feature a delightful octopus in cool aqua blue. Printed one card at a time, the old fashioned way, on my antique printing press on plush white 100% cotton cover weight paper.

In Hawaii, the he'e is a beloved creature with its amazing beauty and delectable taste. Ancient Hawaiians enjoyed eating he'e and the locals continue to relish it today as a pupu or appetizer.
