We created the above postcard earlier this summer for the newlyweds to use as a thank you card after their wedding!  Their wedding photo was digitally printed on linen paper and then was custom duplexed to a 100% cotton backing sheet that we then letterpress printed with a postcard design!  This is a wonderful, classy way to incorporate a digitally printed photo into a letterpress printed piece!

Last, but not least, don’t forget baby announcements!  Twin Ravens Press had the joy of printing the announcements below for one of my best friends, shortly after the birth of her first son!  The letterpress printing was done in two inks and one foil color and then a real, black & white photo of Miles was tipped on to the left of the text!  Adorable.
