The goal of Loaded Hips Press is to inspire us to keep connected. A card is a small but nurturing bridge. The cards of Loaded Hips Press are playful and folksy and completely handmade from carved linocuts and individually printed on a letterpress. More than a greeting card, these are original works of art to be displayed within your visual landscape.
Renewable and sustainable environmental practices are a priority. I re-use many materials from old-school printers, keeping the ink out of the landfill. Paper choices contain high recycled content, and reproductions are made by a Portland-owned family printing company. Check each product description for size and envelope specs.
Parts of the design are printed by hand, so variations in the ink and placement do occur. This is what makes each card unique and tactile. All letterpress cards are printed with a Chandler & Price letterpress from 1913 in my studio in the Southeast Industrial area of Portland, Ore.
