This month’s Card Club delivery is a little bit late summer, a little bit back to school, and all bright and cheery. Subscribers received the very last of a few old favorites, which means next month will have lots of brand new designs!
I also recently held a giveaway to celebrate 1,000 followers on Instagram, so there’s a new member of the club this month! Make sure to follow @622press for future giveaways and subscribe to the card club here!
You guys have seen a lot of the digital prints (now available as a download or archival print!) I’ve created since I launched new product lines just over a year ago, but I’ve also been commissioned to create some really fun custom pieces lately, so I thought I’d share!
One of Andrew’s coworkers got in touch about a set of letterpress prints for a birthday present. Unfortunately, she had already purchased frames that held paper larger than I could print on my press, so I suggested just designing them and having them printed elsewhere. This was such a fun little project for me because I got to use a bunch of my new fonts. And I love how they turned out!
Another commission came via a friend in Utah, who had seen another friend’s Facebook post in search of a designer. She wanted a print for her dad’s 70th birthday—the entire family had contributed to a list of 70 things they loved about their father and grandfather, and I worked them all into an adorable little print!

A few months ago, a friend got in touch about a birthday present for his wife. She’s a list-maker like me, so he thought it would be cool to create personalized list-sized paper as well as stationery. She adores pink and starfish, so I immediately knew one of the vintage cuts Diane sent to me years ago would be perfect in a custom pink ink! We decided to add her initials in a brighter fuchsia and create two different designs that worked perfectly together. I love how the set turned out, and so did she!
