Irreverent, Illustrated Letterpress Miscellany



Be Our Valentines
February 03, 2015

Our press has been loaded with red ink for the past few days. And for once, its purpose was not to correct my many mistakes.

No, this was Valentine’s red. It is the season of love, and so we decided to make some new cards and Anonygrams.

And here is our Valentine. A nest and a bird, a culminating twig and a stream of tiny hearts. You get the picture.

The inside says “Be my Valentine.” We have plenty, should you wish to send one to that special person who holds the piece to your puzzle.

Anonygram Recipients Speak!
January 26, 2015

One of the things we love best about Haywire Letterpress is Anonygrams, which, in case you’re just joining us, is our anonymous letterpress greeting card service. Basically, you give us a name and choose a design, and we send a beautiful piece of heartfelt sentiment (which doubles as a framable art print) to that person in your life who needs a lift or hearty congratulations.

Bundled with each Anonygram is a little card with a secret code. Using this code, the recipient can send an email to their benefactor—without ever learning that person’s identity.



An Abundance of Good Will

Anything in multiples is intriguing, if not downright beautiful.

Such is the case with our Anonygrams. The orders have been trickling in, but one day last week, we got socked with a flood of orders, and boy did it feel nice.


And not just because we like getting orders. Of course we do. But more because each Anonygram is itself a gift, a little piece of love, fondness, or admiration that we get to channel through our studios.

Go Ahead. Make Someone’s Day

Our anonymous greeting card service Anonygrams gives anyone the chance to have us anonymously send a beautiful art print on their behalf. You choose a design that conveys the desired sentiment (congratulations, condolence, affirmation, love, etc.), give us the address, and we take care of the rest.


Each Anonygram is sent in a beautiful blue envelope bearing an address that has been hand-lettered by Robbi. Inside the envelope is a card with a secret code that the sender can use to send a reply—without ever knowing the sender’s identity.

Our hope is to provide a way for people to create goodwill by combining beauty, generosity, and anonymity.[...]
