These letterpress cards are the product of a collaboration between Sapling Press and the Dear Blank, Please Blank project. Dear Blank, Please Blank is a site which asks visitors to write short “letters” written in a dear…, please…, sincerely, … style. The letters on site range from humorous to sarcastic to bitter. Several of the succinct witty letters have been put to letterpress Sapling Press resembling notes typed on vintage typewriters. Here is a selection of some of Sapling’s and DBPB’s hilarious offerings.
