How do you turn a sheet of paper into a piece of fabric? It’s handily done in this sweet set of notecards by using a textured paper and a classic design inspiration.

The bumpy surface of the Mohawk Loop Feltmark that was chosen for this project provides the visual suggestion and the tactile simulation of your favorite well-worn weekend shirt. The paper’s texture also adds dimension to the Helvetica typeface used to spell out the eight short sentiments contained in this set.

Intricate patterns, illustrated and designed by Katie Forte, are woven within the type to create mini works of art. It’s interesting to see how each form changes character depending on the letter and its size. While all the cards have been digitally printed, you get that letterpress aura – again thanks to the paper and the patterns.

The combination of letters and words and a contemporary color palette create a patchwork effect of homespun warmth and earthy simplicity.
