Michigan Greeting Card

12 Acre Studio is my graphic design firm in Chelsea, Michigan. Along with the basics, logo and corporate identity design, collateral materials for marketing and advertising, I design and letterpress print notecards. 

The letterpress printing technique is a welcome respite from time spent in front of a computer. It’s a hands-on process that employs craftsmanship and patience.

The designs are inspired by my interest in keeping the act of letter and note writing alive—- my hope is that an individual will relate to the image on the card and be inspired to share it with a friend via a handwritten note.

The cards are printed with a Chandler & Price table top press. The paper stock is 140# French Muscletone from the French Paper Company in Niles, Michigan.
