"Happy Birthday" Block Printed Greeting Cards, GR18


A Katharine Watson block printed card, handmade in Portland, Maine. 

Each card is individually printed with a hand-carved linoleum block. Each one is hand-printed on our antique Chandler & Price printing press in our studio, with oil-based ink on 100lb card stock. Each card comes with a 100% recycled kraft envelope.

The card is a standard A2 size, 5 ½” by 4 ¼”, and is blank on the inside.

Single cards are packaged in individual sealed cello sleeves, and Sets of Six are packaged in a clear box. 

Because these cards are handmade, small differences in color or printing texture are part of the product.

Block printed cards were our very first product and continue to be one of our best sellers today. Katharine carves each of the linoleum blocks herself, and we print all of the block printed cards one at a time, in our studio. Send a truly handmade greeting with these block printed cards!

Lovely cards

These are beautiful cards, just what I wanted. Nice paper and, of course, a lovely design. Will definitely look here again for cards of all occasions.

These have been my go-to Thank You card for several years now. Recipients, when they've a chance, almost always comment on the beautiful design. An exceptional, handsome design, its color palette perfectly matches my personal preference, and the foil elevates it all. I hope Katherine Watson never discontinues them.

Welcome Baby Card

The card is a perfect personal touch, especially when combined with the ABC Sampler print.

Beautiful Cards

My first buying experience was at the Holiday Market at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC. Now with Covid making shopping a challenge, going to Katherine's website made it so much easier to buy her art. I purchases five boxes of beautiful cards to send to friends and family for special occasions or just to keep in touch.

These flowers!

The flower design speaks to me, I can't resist. The Merry Christmas in red & white is lush but simple. I love the look of block prints and the flower prints are the prettiest I've ever seen. Katharine's work is superb!
