Letterpress Happy Birthday Card: Birthday Cake
This letterpress happy birthday card is a tasty little typographic cake that is perfect for sending in the mail, unlike one made with real eggs and butter...
These cards are approximately 4-1/2" wide by 6" tall, printed in light blue, purple and yellow ink on sturdy creamy white paper and come paired with a matching envelope. These are printed with metal type and my own hand-carved wood block on my Chandler and Price printing press. This is one of my earliest card designs, revived for a new printing in 2021.
The inside of each card is blank and ready for your greetings. My name and website are printed subtly on the back.
Thanks for looking, and be sure to see the other cards available in my shop:

A NOTE ABOUT GREETING CARDS:
Rate increases have made it so that shipping a single card in a rigid, protective mailer at the first class package rate now costs me more than three dollars. However, the rates don't go up steeply from there. For orders of greeting cards within the United States, the first card will incur a shipping charge of $3.25, but additional cards in the same order will ship for no additional shipping fee. SO - it pays to buy more than one!
SHIPPING IN GENERAL:
I will ship your order within the time period specified on each listing. For most products, and for most of the year, this will be within three business days, but for certain items and at certain time periods (holidays and vacations) shipping may take longer - when extended shipping times are in effect, you'll see this noted on the shipping times with each listing. I ship my products in sturdy mailers via USPS first class mail, or via Priority mail for larger or more expensive items - see the individual listing for shipping options.
Due to increasing costs and complications, I am sorry to say that I am no longer shipping items to addresses outside the United States and Canada. Any customs duties for Canadian orders are the responsibility of the buyer.
I want every order to arrive in good shape in the mailbox of a happy customer, but I know that some times bad things happen in transit. If something has gone wrong, please let me know. In cases of loss or damage, I'll either grant a refund or dispatch a replacement depending on your wishes and what I have in stock. If items are damaged in shipping, I may ask you to return them to me at my expense so that I can see if I need to adjust my packaging.
