I met Jean-Fréderic Pouvatchi from Letterpress de Paris in 2016 for the collaboration on Joie Bonheur & Volupté card. She is like a flower bouquet you offer with lot of intentions in it. technically she is a blind embossed and one color card. subtility and elegance would be her two adjectives. We relized three other complex and sparkling beauties since.

Letterpress cards made by Swindler & Swindler and printed by letterpress de Paris.

All three required different techniques: Blind embossing, gold foil, inks. these cards are printed on old and mighty heidelberg press. It is truely spectacular to see these machines in action, the ballet of their movements are extrimely precise and yet smooth.

Here is a zoom on the card l'anniversaire, an hypotetical tarot card filled with love and magic.

you can truely appreciate the precision with how these machines works. the gold is a marvel.

On an other hand, I started working with Spind. "Merci" was our first collaboration. We met again two years later when we worked on Leila's correspondances. Oh they have something particular when it comes to gold foil. It is simply spectacular ! I realized my 2022 greeting card with the same recipe and the result is breathless.
