New Colors





As a printer, I spend a fair amount of time mixing inks, and I have learned that there are a lot of different colors out there. My somewhat out of date Pantone mixing guide has recipes for 1,341 different colors, but that doesn’t even begin to cover the possibilities even with the basic mixing colors. Point being, every person brings a slightly different mix of characteristics with them, and the blending of these characteristics in a relationship can bring about new wonders and joys never before seen, and that is beautiful. Or you can read this card as being about making a baby. Who will also be a beautiful never before seen mix of two people, their genetics and their personalities. Either reading is fine. You just might want to be clear about which you mean in whatever you write in the card, to avoid any misunderstandings. Letterpress printed in blue, red, and gold ink on 118# heavyweight cotton card stock. A2 (5.5″ x 4.25″) sized folded card with matching envelope. Printed by hand in Madison, Wisconsin using metal and wood type.
