Elegant, multicolor letterpress. The artistry with which the ink is pressed into the paper creates a 3-dimensional effect that is difficult to show on a computer screen.
Smudge Ink

Smudge Ink is a design company and working letterpress studio run by Kate Saliba and Deb Bastien. Smudge Ink is located in a renovated textile factory on the Mystic River in the historic Charlestown section of Boston, MA. Originally focused on exquisite, colorful letterpress-printed greeting cards and custom invitations, Smudge Ink’s product line has expanded to include offset-printed cards, calendars and gift wrap.

Environment: Smudge Ink uses soy inks and between 30-100% post-consumer recycled paper. Much of the power used for its presses is wind generated. The studio takes pride in recycling and reusing almost everything employed to create it products.


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.)
