Blank inside.

Dimensions: 5.5 x 4.25"

Maker: Albertine Press (Cambridge, MA)

Albertine Press was conceived in 2005 by Shelley Barandes, a sometime-architect and paper fanatic with connections to printing that run deep — grandfathers and great-grandfathers on both sides were printers and press operators. It was her grandmother’s lessons about the importance of a hand-written card that instilled a deep appreciation for the value of a thoughtful note.

With designs ranging from classic and elegant to witty and irreverent, Shelley’s work is inspired by a love of the urban architectural experience, gestural minimalism, and playful puns. Albertine Press operates their vintage equipment using the same centuries-old techniques and keen eye for detail as past generations, enhanced with a touch of modern technology.
