Come to De Milo’s studio 5-9pm and letterpress a Happy Birthday card on marble paper using vintage wood type. Ambitious printers have the option of personalizing their cards by setting a name of their choice in lead type.

Both packaged in a recycled craft gift box. Order five sets and get a sixth set completely free! For ease of production single initials will be used rather than the multiple initial monograms pictured. Preview initial designs and paper color choices here. Order online below by December 16, 2012
