A Paper Holiday: Best of the Press — by Guest Aunt "Papergirl" Lyndsey

Hello again friends! Today’s my last day posting here on Design Mom, so I thought I’d go out with a bang. I’m a major sucker for anything letterpress, so here’s a little roundup of some of the cards that have really caught my eye this holiday season.

The awesome holiday postcard, pictured at top, is a chic alternative to your typical folding card. Parrott Design Studio prints these using vintage wood type and hand-mixed ink onto the recycled chipboard card; the back is printed with an old-fashioned postcard graphic to add a little extra fun to your seasonal greeting.

I also love the luxe designs of Hammerpress. They’ve got plenty of multi-faceted holiday cards, saying everything from “Happy New Year!” to “Feliz Navidad” to “Merry Christmas.” This Hanukkah card is simple and pretty with its one-tone color, but still has a fun holiday design.

Egg Press has always been one of my favorite stationery companies — their cards are so colorful and fun. Love this offset printed Peace card with a letterpressed message inside.

Delphine Studio offers a bunch of great holiday cards, but this stunning polar bear card takes the cake. The detail is amazing – and best of all, you could send it any time throughout the winter, not just for a holiday.

I’m also a fan of this sweet and simple snowflake card from 12fifteen — gorgeous. I’d almost want to keep this one for myself and display it with my Christmas decorations!

To close, just wanted to leave you with this festive, cute owl greeting from Short Stack Press — I really do hope your holidays are a hoot!

I hope I’ve made your holiday card shopping a little easier this week!

Swing by The Stationery Place any time for extra inspiration and stationery ideas. Even in the midst of all the holiday craziness, don’t forget to focus on the true meaning of the season no matter what you’re celebrating — and be sure to send a stylish, well-designed card to let your loved ones know you’re thinking of them.

Here’s to a happy, healthy and chic Christmas and New Year! xoxo
