My own Cartoules!

After all this time I never found the chance to create my own personalized Cartoules, so yesterday and today I devoted a few hours to finally getting my name letterpressed into some beautiful, soft, and yummy Crane Lettra paper. I'm very happy with the print job and the colors, which were hand mixed.

After the first run, the cards await their second color

Into the press they go!

The final product! Don't you love? :)

  1. Hi Julie - Seems like we followed a similar path, getting engaged and then learning to letterpress to create our own DIY wedding invites. I'm wondering, what was your method for trimming your cards? I ended up using an X-acto, and cutting everything by hand...but now thinking it may have been a wise investment for a guillotine paper cutter.

    Best of luck with your new endeavor!

  2. Hey! Thanks for your comment. I used a standard crafting paper cutter and cut them 2-3 at a time. It's very time consuming, but it gets the job done nicely. I would love to invest in a guillotine paper cutter too... one day :-)
