In honor of Grace's letterpress guide, let's take a look at Etsy papergoods.
Missellz1980 is a prospective CalArts student who makes handbags, paintings, and cards. I'm a fan of her atomic cards (above - $5 for 2) and her hearts cards ($5.50 for 2).
I see an awful lot of bird-themed cards on Etsy. These are crisp, not cutesy.
Reserve these hand-cut cards ($8 for 2) for someone who'll appreciate them.
Kelli McMahon is the artist behind Maydaystudio, a bookbindery and letterpress printer. This journal ($12) has gorgeous marbeled endpapers.
Goodygoody makes cards using letterpress and gocco. These gift tags ($3.50 for 4) are even lovelier in person.
Brooklyn-based FiskandFern make collages and cards. Below, their aquatic cards ($8 for 4).
Susie Ghahremani is an illustrator with an impressive resume and a swell Web site. Her moving announcements ($6 for 10) are charming.
