2016 is almost over and its nearly time to welcome in the new year.
Christmas is fast approaching which means our Christmas cards are now ready and in the post.
Our creative team have designed a lovely looking card with a twist! This year we wanted to create something with a dual purpose that was an interesting alternative to an ordinary greetings card. The card has been beautifully printed – combining traditionally lithographic and letterpress techniques – on a 270gsm GF Smith Colorplan board in Ice White. The uncoated texture of the board is complimented by the distinct indentation from the letterpress print technique – giving it a wonderful tactile finish.
The card has a die-cut hole at its centre through which a piece of red satin ribbon was strung. This is so that the card can be transformed into a hanging festive decoration! When the recipient opens the card to read the festive message inside, there is a handy illustration to inform how to fold it into the star-like form.
All of our cards were carefully hand finished by our team and assembled in-house. From cutting and knotting the lengths of ribbon to folding the cards and stringing the ribbons through. It all comes carefully packaging inside a Silkweave embossed Scarlet colorplan envelope.
Take a look at the photos below!
We would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a merry christmas and warm wishes over the festive period.
Please note Nilorn UK will be closed over the christmas period from 23rd December until 3rd January.
