PERSONALISED CLASSY STATIONERY

FOR THOSE WITH GRACE AND GRATITUDE,
WHO LOVE STATIONERY AND GOOD MANNERS

IT'S TIME TO GET ORGANISED

Raise your hand if you've ever wanted to send a quick note, but didn't have a card on hand?

It's so annoying, right?

At Christmas my neighbours give both of my children a present. My children are the same ages as their grandchildren and it’s incredibly generous of them.

Every year I intend to send a Thank you, some years I have and some I have not. And come January I feel guilty and ungrateful that I didn't send a simple Thank you for the thought and effort they put in to my children.

So I decided to get organised and you can too.

I printed several designs for our family, the kids and myself and now have notecards on hand, to send out a quick note every time. Whether it's a quick thank you, a birthday card or a note to put in a parcel I'm posting to a friend. I've got it covered.

Let me introduce myself, I'm Clazena (unusual I know, it's pronounced Cla-zee-na, in case you were wondering). I am the founder, designer and printer of Tumbleweed Letterpress, AKA a one woman operation! I live in the Canterbury countryside with my husband and two young children.

I create personalised letterpress stationery that helps women send classy invitations, and notes to friends and family. For the past ten years or so, I have been creating custom stationery for discerning clients all over the world.

From my family to yours, I hope you'll love these notecards as much I've enjoyed designing and printing them. They are a labour of love, letterpress printed one-by-one by yours truly, on my vintage printing presses.

With grace and gratitude.

“I’ve always loved the vintage look of letterpress stationery and having our own personalised cards to send, makes it even more special. ”

REASONS YOU'LL LOVE YOUR PERSONALISED NOTECARDS

  • Having a stack on hand for birthday(s), congratulations and thank you’s. It makes it easy and quick to send a personal message at a moments notice.
  • Let your kids write their own notes to Grandma. Or better yet, give a set to grandparents to write notes to your child. Imagine the joy when they get fancy mail addressed to them!
  • If you're a new mum, currently pregnant or have a friend who is. You'll be sending lots of small thank you's for all the lovely well wishes for your new bundle of joy. Send them in personalised style.
  • Personalise the cards with your baby's details and combine as a birth announcement. The perfect personalised gift for a new parent.
  • Make the right impression at work. Attach your letterpress notes to documents and contracts for that professional touch.
  • A great gift for the stationery lover, who will appreciate the personal touch!

YOUR NOTECARDS, PERSONALISED TO SUIT YOU

THE ART OF LETTERPRESS PRINTING

Letterpress printing is a process that dates back to the fifteenth century and is a true craft. While all type was originally hand set with individual letters, now days I use modern typefaces to design stationery.

The process involves creating a raised printing plate of your design, that is then inked up and literally 'pressed' into quality cotton paper to produce the finished stationery product, one piece at a time.

Tumbleweed Letterpress is home to 9 vintage printing presses. One of the treadle operated Chandler and Price presses was built in 1896, while the two 'newer' Heidelberg T Platen presses are from the 1960s and 70s.

All the presses print only one notecard at a time, with ink colours that are mixed by hand. I am committed to the keeping the art of letterpress alive in the modern age.

While a very labour intensive process, the beautiful, tactile impression in the paper
is something only letterpress printing can produce.
