Letterpress Greeting Cards that Spread the Charm
Today’s blog post is dedicated to the letterpress greeting cards of Bruno Press. Based in St Joseph, Minnesota, Designer McB (that’s Mary C Bruno) has been developing her collection of greeting cards for the last six years. The second generation printer in her family, Mary inherited her print shop from her father – another great Designer and Printer – and in the next few months will be taking the big leap into the world of card & gift trade shows. The Bruno Press collection uses the traditional letterpress printing technique, which relies on Mary placing the type and carving the linoleum blocks by hand; giving the designs a tactile and handmade quality that I adore. Mary has built up an extensive collection of designs suitable for any occasion. Each greeting card has its own individual charm and character; with funny & cute phrases, the collection has a unique personality that will appeal to both men and women. I hope you like the small selection shown today and that we all get to see more of Bruno Press as they take their next steps into the world of greeting cards.
Featured greeting cards from the Bruno Press collection are available to purchase online. Retailing at $4.00 each, you can see the full set of designs at the Bruno Press website.
