The heavy stock we use for our original cards has its own intrinsic beauty in the non-uniform textures and fibres. The card is from the UK’s last producer of cotton paper and retains much of the organic quality of the raw materials.
We personalise the cards by casting slugs of type using one of our hot metal or Linotype mechanical typesetting machines. Hot metal typesetting allows us to use a conventional press - there is an impact between your text and the surface of the card. The resulting type is deep, crisp, and in perfect harmony with the card stock. There is beauty in the simplicity of the card and the typography.
