In our email age, old-fashioned written correspondence is a refreshing throwback, like drinking a soda made with real sugar or watching the president hand someone a sword. Write a thank-you note to the past with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a box of six hand-pressed cherry-blossom cards with envelopes (a $28.50 value) from Letterpress Light, a DC-based artisan card company in McLean Gardens.
Recently featured on the Wedding Channel, Letterpress Light owner Heather Noss developed her own process of special compression plates that creates deep imprints while enhancing handwritten sentiment. Each card exterior glows with vibrant pink and red hues of the iconic DC cherry blossom, and the interiors all feature the same design—blankness. Spring into the season of weddings, baby showers, and infant engagement parties with the proper parchment tools for penning unique invitations and thank-you notes. Crane's heavyweight 100 percent cotton paper helps memos make their mailbox mark without boxing moves. Groupon customers can choose to pay for shipping or pick up their order at Letterpress Light's retail location.
