Saturn Press

In 1986, designer Jane Goodrich and printer James vanPernis hauled a discarded 1932 press weighing 3800 lbs. to Swan's Island, Maine. Thus began Saturn Press, an early force in the Renaissance in letterpress printing. In their accessible-only-by-ferry location, they create exquisite cards featuring vintage illustrations. The multicolor letterpress artisanship is superb. A small company with global reach, Saturn Press operates without computers or voicemail.

Environment: Printed on recycled paper


The actual cards are at least as attractive as the images you see

We try hard to capture each card's image, but some cards are difficult to display accurately on a computer screen. Three-dimensional effects, such as embellishments and paper texture, are especially challenging. Colors may be more attractive in the physical card than they appear on your monitor. Type may be sharper and more readable.

Be assured, however, that we only offer cards that are visually appealing. Of course, if you are dissatisfied for any reason, you can return your purchase for a full refund (including regular shipping).

Our goal: To find great cards that you would otherwise never see

A few large publishers dominate the distribution of greeting cards, while hundreds of boutique publishers struggle to gain access to consumers. Unless you visit our site, you may never get the chance to see the cards of the these small publishers. Yet they are the source of much creativity and innovation in the greeting card industry.

We search for the most creative cards from the best independent publishers—cards that will surprise and delight the recipients. (We, of course, also offer a large collection of appealing mainstream cards.)
