A beautiful set of cards perfect for thank-yous, remembrances, or simply a particularly striking piece of correspondence, printed by hand from an archive of historic, hand-engraved dies and plates.

Engraved purple thistle accent on horizontal bone white cards with chartreuse borders. Envelopes hand-lined with lilac tissue (Box of 10).

Engraving is the pinnacle of all printing techniques. One of the oldest printing techniques in the world, it is considered a beautiful and unique decorative technique. The process works by forcing ink out of the die and onto paper under very high pressure. The distinguishing mark of engraving is that the image and type is raised on the paper. Each color is printed one at a time. Sometimes an embossing run is added to bring a three dimensional feel to the image by pressing the edges of the image in the opposite direction of the raised engraving. The paper is hand fed and each piece is printed one at a time with up to 6 tons of pressure, creating an engraved and embossed image with startling clarity, color purity and depth.
