Holiday Cheer

PRODUCT STORY
Katie particularly loves the tactile quality that typography gets when it's been screen printed. These cards were inspired by old posters and the rich tradition of folk art around the holidays. The type becomes the image and proclaims the greeting loudly right on the front of the card (they are blank inside).

Katie says, "The design is steeped in tradition and carries the festivity of the season to your friends and family. With each of the designs I tweaked the typography and ornamental elements both on the computer and off by editing and distressing it to get the tactile quality that helps to create a unique piece. Once satisfied with the design, I silk screen printed the designs in my Brooklyn studio to make the finished cards."

You don't have to drink champagne to appreciate these unique screen printed cards. Does Katie's design fill you with holiday cheer?

I hear the paper is from The Endless Ream of Good Will and the inks were crafted from tears of joy mixed with fruit from Shangri-La. Beautiful work!

Love the distressed look of these cards! And the bright envelope makes them so different! Can't beat a silk screened Christmas card!

I will probably sound like a stick in the mud, but why does "Holiday Cheer" have to be a bottle of Champagne? Personally I thought the holidays were supposed to be about spending time with your loved ones. Call me crazy.

Ridiculous price, period. I don't care what they look like at that price. Although, personally, I'm not fond of "holiday cheer" being personified as a bottle of alcohol--that's not Christmas--or the faded bar sign look. FYI, After viewing the other Christmas cards on Uncommon Goods, it's clear that I won't be buying my cards here this year, or any other year. The prices are ridiculous for mediocre products.

Don't like the chosen colors. Not Christmas colors.

Thanks for the feedback, everyone! We're glad to see so many votes and comments coming in for our Uncommon Holiday Greeting Card Design Challenge semi-finalists! Please keep in mind that every card in our voting assortment is handmade. They are all printed using letter press or screen printing and are made from high-quality materials. Although they cost a bit more than mass-produced cards, each is a work of art that can be sent to someone special as a way to spread holiday cheer!

Sorry, I think this one just isn't as clever or as beautiful as the other cards in the contest.
