Zeichen Press: Funky Cards with a Retro Flare

There is something incredibly nostalgic about the feel of the cards from Zeichen Press -- that is until you read the funny, funky messages that put a modern twist on a retro look.

The cards, coasters, and cd cases created using an antique letterpress complete with vintage printer blocks, wood type, and antique lead for a truly vintage finished product. The use of the vintage method gives the cards a layer of texture and depth that today's printers just cannot capture.

The witty messages are sure to bring a smile to your face.

A sampling for new moms include: "Eat, Sleep, Poop -- Repeat", "I'm Glad You're Having a Baby -- And I'm Not", and "Hey I Wasn't Born Yesterday - Just Kidding I Totally Was". They have a complete line with cards available to mark just about any cardworthy event. (They even do custom design work if you want something really, really unique.)

Founded by two sisters-in-law in Minneapolis. Jen and Fran have an easy rule for their messages: "I write something and if Jen laughs, we use it," says Fran.

Available at select retailers.
