Procrastination Pays: Letterpress Christmas Cards

• 12 December 2008

This year the Husband asked that I not make our Christmas cards...not because he doesn't like my crafty creations, but that they take soooooo much of my time. Secretly, I am relieved. It's often just as expensive and a lot more hassle. Although, I always appreciate a beautiful, handmade card myself...maybe next year :)

Given this newfound freedom I've been looking around shops and the internet for about 3 weeks now...trying to find a great card at a great price. A deal was not to be had. So I waited. And then good deals popped up all over. In fact, I just snatched up some beautiful letterpressed Christmas cards from Crane & Co two days ago for about a dollar a piece...and they threw in free shipping! (It looks like I cleaned them out of that particular design but there are still a few other designs remaining.) Bottom line: if you are like me and waited to get on the Christmas-card-bandwagon, here are a few options...all letterpress...and all discounted. For the Etsyans you'll have to contact the shop owner about discount specifics, but I found them all willing to cut the price if you want to purchase larger quantities (50, 100, 150, etc.), which we all know is easy to do at Christmas.

Crane & Co - also check out the Kate Spade offerings in "Clearance Holiday".

Night Owl - they even have letterpressed photo cards! Apply a 25% discount on all orders placed between now and December 31, 2008 by using the code friend08 at checkout. They have an ample sale section, which you can view here.
