Booklicious: Library-Inspired Letterpress Greeting Cards

July 29, 2010


I hemmed and hawwed about posting about SIMPLESONG Design on here for one terrible, selfish reason - I don't want my favorite thank-you cards to be out of stock when I go to buy them. I know, it's shameful. But I decided that these particular cards were too lovely not to share, so, begrudgingly, I will introduce you to one of my favorite letterpress designers.

SIMPLESONG Design is based out of DC and run by Suann Song. I stumbled upon her stationery soon after she opened her Etsy store back in 2008, and she's received a lot of much-deserved press since then. So many of her designs are stunning, but I think you'll find her library card-inspired items irresistible. 

These birthday and congratulations cards are designed to look like old-school check-out cards, from the typewriter-esque typeface to the manila pocket that holds the card. The cards measure 3.25 inches by 4.75 inches and include a Kraft envelope to keep the library theme going. You can purchase the congratulations card here, the birthday card here.
