Sweet Somethings + Giveaway

The first five people to like Smart & Wiley on Facebook will receive a hand written note on a one-of-a-kind makeready postcard from the press run. We’ll also throw in a bonus makeready card for the first five to make a purchase through our Felt & Wire shop.

Smart & Wiley’s latest offering is a set of four Valentine’s Day postcards, just right for the type/letterpress lover in your life. See more pictures on our website, check out our Facebook page, and pick up a set for you and your sweetie from our Felt & Wire shop before they’re gone!

Each greeting was lovingly set by hand in 12 point ATF News Gothic metal type.

A 10 line wood type heart was printed in four pastel, candy-heart colors with a vigorous kiss.

The one-color (passionate, Fireball Red) postcard backs were composed from foundry metal type and brass rule.

Eat your heart out Cupid. Nothing will besot your beloved quite like letterspaced Bodoni and Steelplate Gothic Shaded caps.
