... we'll come in with the letterpress printing and edge painting to finish it off. And they look fantastic! We used our new neon pink ink (love!) and added a dab or two of another red to darken it to better match the pre-printed addresses on the envelopes.

Then we mixed a pink and a purple for the edge painting.
