Winter Wordplay

Searching for a joyful way to send season's greetings to everyone on your list? Find inspiration in Alexandra Daley's word search cards that feature over thirty hidden, holiday words, allowing senders to deliver good tidings their own way!

This interactive set of salutations won UncommonGoods' Greeting Card Design Challenge by leaving a lasting impression with our community about how much fun a non-denominational card can be. Fusing pristine craft and distinguished technique, Alex and her team mix all of the inks used by hand, in order to create rich, unique colors that don't exist in the Pantone spectrum. Every card is then hand-printed on a vintage Vandercook Cylinder Proof Press, trimmed and creased to give every print a professional polish. Designed and printed on Long Island in New York.

Alexandra Daley

Dolce Press is the innovation of Alexandra Daley, a design veteran who operates out of Long Island, New York. As a graphic designer, it was only natural for Alex to want to broaden her artistic vision and share her work with the world. This desire inspired her to learn, and eventually master, letterpress printing, which is, in her words, a technique that is "the ultimate in chic sophistication."

Alex's use of crisp lines, graphics and eloquent typography has made Dolce Press a studio known for producing letterpress stationary that's made to impress. A stickler for perfection, Alex guarantees the kind of flawless implementation that will ultimately personify you or your event.

We love the fun design of these cotton paper cards. Is the search for the perfect holiday stationery over?

I think these cards would be great to send to shool age children. They could find thier own words and have fun doing it.

$17 for 6 cards plus extra postage... How many cards does one send out? Fun for kids, sure, but for $1 I can get a holiday activity coloring book with 50 pages at the pharmacy...

These are fun. While I agree that they might not be cost effective if you have huge card lists but as one person lamented...there is no extra postage required since the normal postage rate is still $.44 at this time.

Something fun and "umcommon" great

Again, I love the idea... just can't tolerate the price.

Maxine
Vote: Thumbs up!

I agree the price is too high for me to buy but the idea is fun and unique. My father would have loved this.

They're probably nice in person, but they're a bit childish and not very festive. Rainbow word searches don't exactly evoke Christmas sentiment. Also...6 cards for nearly $20? They could be the greatest cards in the world, and I wouldn't pay that price.

Jennifer
Vote: Thumbs down!

While I like the design this is definitely not something I could afford and I would suggest lowering the price, a lot.

I agree the colors are a little muted but I might consider buying one box to send something a little fun/interesting to a few teens/kids on my list.

WOW these cards are awesome! It's always really hard for me and my wife to find cards that work for Hanukkah and Christmas, these ones definitely do the trick.

We really appreciate everyone's comments!We wanted to share some photos of the boxes that these cards come in. You can view the photos here: http://www.dolcepress.com/blog/2011/11/22/letterpress-holiday-boxes/The boxes are custom made in our studio and assembled by hand. Each one is letterpress printed and finished with a sticker. We'd love to know what everyone thinks of them!We also wanted to comment about the Word Search cards. We designed these cards to be universal / customizable. You can circle your holiday greeting in the word search or send it blank and let your friends and family find all of the words. Each box set comes with 6 instruction cards, one for each card you send out.One last thing, we intentionally left the colors on this card neutral so that no holiday would be left out!
