I have recently been working on some smaller commissions and now I have the pleasant task of engraving our Christmas card. I do this every year and then, in subsequent years, the image is added to the group of cards that we print for sale; we are offering five this year.
Each card measures 147 x 104 mm (a nominal 6 x 4") and is printed on a very pale cream thick (300gsm) card. Every card is supplied with a matching high quality envelope by Conqueror. The cards are blank for your own seasonal message and the engraving on the front is printed by hand from the original engraved woodblock on "Red", the 1902 Albion handpress (pictured above).
Here are this years designs:
Partridge In A Pear Tree
Two Turtle Doves, Ely
Three French Hens
They are all available for sale both singly and in groups in my Etsy shop, which has recently been reopened. I will shortly offer them from my website.
And now... back to this year's card!
