In celebration of Flag Day, Big Max’s Studio launches it’s “Fifteen Stars and Fifteen Stripes” letterpress note card.

The 15-star, 15-stripe flag was authorized by the Flag Act of January 13, 1794, adding 2 stripes and 2 stars. The regulation went into effect on May 1, 1795. This was the only U. S. Flag to have more than 13 stripes. It was immortalized by Francis Scott Key during the bombardment of Fort McHendry on September 13, 1814.

I wanted this card to resemble a flag that had been in battle. By printing the cards using a letterpress machine I was able to achieve that goal. When it came to choosing the font, I want it to represent that time period. P22 Type Foundry’s  “Declaration” was perfect.

The cards are an A2 size (4.25 x 5.5) and are printed on 110 lb Crane’s Lettra 100% pearl white cotton paper. They are paired with Crane’s pearl white envelopes. The inside of the card is blank for your message. Since the cards are hand printed, slight variations in color and ink distribution do occur.

There are 10 cards and 10 envelopes in each box and sell for $19.99 a box. They can be purchased at Big Max’s Studio’s Etsy shop.
