I am luck enough to also own a card from Dutch Door Press, that turquoise Happy Birthday one in fact! Based out of the main floor of a Victorian San Francisco home, Dutch Door is run by Mara and Anna, letterpress printers/illustrators who teamed up in 2006. They have a range of cards, totes, notebooks and wedding invitations. Look at more of the loveliness here http://www.dutchdoorpress.com/. The root vegetable card set is one of my favourites, I think I have a particular friend who may be getting that for her birthday!

Unfortunately I do not yet own any of these lovely prints by Kansas City-based Hammerpress. They have a rather large selection of cards, prints, posters, shirts, postcards and calendars that can be purchased on their site. I love the Victorian-esque/ retro/ quirky illustrations..their style varies between prints. See more here http://hammerpress.net/.
Thanks for letting me share my first "things i love" feature. Happy weekend! xo.
