Meet the Cute, Sometimes Cranky Letterpress Cards

Chicago-based McBitterson’s Shop create “cute, sometimes cranky” letterpress greeting cards. Designed by Jenny Piette, the cards combine a traditional, tactile printing process with a contemporary design flavour. As a huge fan of letterpress design and charming, funny cards I really love the McBitterson’s greetings cards range (especially the adorable sloth design shown above) and hope you do too.

A serial creative, designer Jenny is hugely experienced with crafting, drawing and making wonderful things. Along the creative journey she fell in love with the process of creating letterpress cards. Utilising a vintage press from the 1960’s, McBitterson’s was soon brimming with cards; mini works of art that artfully combine witty text with sweet and sharp graphics. Printed, scored, folded and packed by hand in Jenny’s studio, the cards use a heavyweight cotton paper to leave a tactile surface texture that can be felt and appreciated by the recipient. The current collection of cards has designs for birthdays, occasions and every day correspondence.
