OUR HOLIDAY CARD 2016

Our personal holiday card is almost always an engraving printed on thinner card stock and sent to family and friends. This year I printed about 80.

The sketch always starts with an idea my wife has, which becomes a doodle and eventually a loose drawing. This years idea was our front porch. 

This is a 3x4 inch  Resingrave block. 

Actual engraving took about 8 hours. I went a little wild with all the tight tiny lines that make up the walls of the house.

These actually printed with very little difficulty. Like a Christmas present from the Print Gods...

And here's the final card. These were printed on cream colored 90 lb. card stock with matching envelopes. I letterpress printed our return address on the envelopes as well.

Wishing You a Very Wonderful Holiday Season and and Fantastic New Year! We have so much planned at Spofford Press for 2017!

Be safe! Have fun!
