I have been hand stamping invitations for a while now and recently decided to hand stamp my letterpressed note cards. I was nervous that it would dilute the quality of the letterpress - but I have found the opposite to be true. It adds another layer - in a really good way I think. And when it is physically layered on top of the letterpressed image, as in the Summer Dress card below for Eloise, I find the chocolate ink to be like a beautiful linen screen.
While I have been personalizing stationery on a You Ask, I'll Do It Basis, you'll soon be able to personalize your note cards online through our website. Here are some samples I have done in the past:
Having the names rubber stamped gives me the flexibility to place the name wherever I want, in any color, and on different designs. AND, the person gets to keep their stamp. I love the way it looks and can't wait to do more of them.
Email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want your very own.
And let me know what you think of the rubber stamp/letterpress combo. I'd love to hear what you think.
