Publisher: Elum

Elegant, multicolor letterpress on 100% pure cotton rag paper. The artistry with which the ink is pressed into the paper creates a textured, 3-dimensional effect that is difficult to show on a computer screen.

Encouraged by the highly enthusiastic reception of her wedding-stationery designs, Elum's founder decided to create a line of letterpress cards. Located in North County San Diego, CA, Elum handles every step of production in-house, from design conception to letterpress printing—ensuring complete control over the quality of its product at all times. Elum strives to find the best possible printmaking papers. Every single piece is created with a passion for design detail and printed perfection.

Environment: Elum uses tree-free, 100% post-industrial waste cotton rag papers and soy based inks. The steel-backed letterpress plates are recycled after use, and the scrap and waste papers that accumulate get picked up by fiber recyclers. Elum has been recognized by Legacy Fibers for its outstanding contribution in paper recycling.

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.)
