PRODUCT STORY
Kim's cards are inspired by her photographs. She says, "I've learned, as a visual artist, that the land is broken up into simple shapes. I took these shapes and made them into these cards. They are nature inspired. But what I like most is that they are a bit different from other letterpress work out there because they focus on big blocks of color."

Kim's designs are rendered in Illustrator and then made into polymer plates. She uses two different presses to hand-print her cards- a Heidelberg Windmill and a Chandler and Price.

Although Kim's designs are inspired by photographs, they have a whimsical, surreal quality. Would you send this enchanting card this season?

Again, love the print. Just $16 for 6 cards? Really.

This scene captures the hush of new fallen snow in the deep woods where the quiet is absolute.

There does not seem to be anything special for me about these cards. I read the process and appreciate the time and effort. It is just not my kind of scene.

As much as I enjoy the design, I cannot bring myself to pay almost 20 dollars for only 6 cards.

What exactly is it? Is it a painting? Is it a cover for something? It looks just a little too bland if it is a card as I think it is. When I go into a store to find Christmas/Holiday cards I would walk right by something like this.

Thanks for asking, Elinor. This is a greeting card that was entered in our Holiday Greeting Card Design Challenge. The first 15 products in our voting app this week are all semi-finalists in this contest. All of the original designs are hand-printed using either letterpress or screen printing. This particular design was created by Kimberly Tschida Petters, who uses two different presses to print her photography-inspired cards.

I am starting to see a common theme with handmade cards being cute but way too pricey.

As a letterpress card, this is a pretty tricky one to print, it's very serene. The price is in line with letterpress. People - this is not your glossy boxed from the big box store.

Look at all the price-sensitive customers with their "Bah, humbug!" comments. Can any of them use a calculator to figure out 6 cards for $16 is about $2.33 a card? Much less than many mass-produced cards. Here's a tip for these Scrooges: buy your Christmas cards Dec 26th. They're cheaper the day after Christmas and we all know you really don't have anyone to send them to.
