The run up to Valentine's Day can often turn into a headache and a half. If you're looking for something a little different for the love in your life, feast your eyes upon these beautiful letterpress card (opens in new tab) designs from the folks at The Hungry Workshop (opens in new tab).
This year the printmakers asked real-life couple and talented designers, Jesse Mallon (opens in new tab) and Peter Borg (opens in new tab), to each work on their own letterpress creation, providing their own expression for Valentine’s Day.

Jesse Mallon created the 'We're Good Together' card shown above. It approaches the brief with the idea of finding the perfect match, whilst realising that every couple is different. Mallon's design features a broad range of matches that include wine and cheese, salt and pepper and even the birds and the bees.
The 'Love Sampler' card, designed by Peter Borg, is inspired by the classic Whitman’s Sampler (opens in new tab), with each chocolate illustrated to represent a different expression of love. On the back of the the card you’ll find a guide with descriptions of each chocolate. We love the little touches with this one!
The cards are A6 (105 x 148.5mm) and letterpress printed on Stephen Smart White 330gsm, a 100% carbon neutral stock with each card coming with a kraft envelope.
If you love these cards as much as we do, you can purchase them in The Hungry Workshop online shop (opens in new tab).
