Custom Letterpress Notecards - Argent
Stationery just for you... or a friend or family member.
For our custom letterpress notecards you choose the text that gets printed and this will be handset in metal type and hand printed on our vintage press. They are perfect for sending thank you notes, catching up with old friends during letter writing month, and make for a thoughtful wedding present or personalized gift.
The typeface for these notecards is Argent, a 19th century Victorian style type designed by the Cleveland Type Foundry in 1883. The fine shading within the letters makes it look like its printed in two colours and gives it a delicate and romantic feel.
The images show a variety of options to give you an idea of how your cards will look. All available characters for the typeface and colour options for ink and envelopes are shown in the final images.
Your custom text could be anything from initials to a full name, or even a short phrase but try to keep it under about 20 characters. Be as specific as possible, using capital and lowercase letters and appropriate symbols like “&" or “and” (for the catchword) where necessary to indicate your preferences. This typeface also includes flourishes as shown in some of the examples, please let us know if you don't want these otherwise we'll add as we think appropriate.
These custom cards are printed specially for you after the order is placed and so it will be approximately 1-3 weeks before they ship. If you need them by a specific date contact us before ordering and we'll let you know if a faster turnaround is possible.
