Alphabet Flash Cards

Each year Legion Paper and Flywheel Press team up to create a wonderful take-away to give to those who attend the National Stationery Show in New York City. From the concept to the collaboration of many talented designers involved, this year’s gift entitled “S is for Stationery” is truly inspired.

The collection contains 26 A2-sized cards – each one featuring a different letter of the alphabet. With only the finished size and a specific letter as a requirement, the designers had the freedom to create a card that reflected his or her work and persona. The result is a paper-and-ink-lover’s dream. Processes included foil stamping, letterpress and digital printing.

Paper selections were staggeringly, swoon-inducingly varied: Coventry Rag Vellum, Factory Yellow Colorplan, Reich Savoy, Lanaquarelle, Curious Matter, Mohawk Via Vellum, Legion Bamboo, Somerset Satin, Kochi Natural, Revere Silk, Arches Watercolor, Plike, 4-ply Rising Museum Board, Gruppo Cordenons Wild, Mohawk Options, Arturo, Reich Shine, Yupo Translucent, and Crane’s Lettra … to name a few.
