Painted Tongue Press

Upper Village Blooms offers an exclusive selection of greeting cards that is unlike anything you’ll find in these hinterlands of NYC, and we take pride in it. It’s eclectic, sometimes irreverent, polite, and always tasteful.

Painted Tongue Press immediately caught our eye with their letterpress botanical cards. They are pressed on creamy, substantial paper and colored delicately. Unlike anything we’ve seen though, Painted Tongue Press cards are pressed on both the front and back.

We got excited over some gorgeous floral-themed cards and then saw the envelopes! Most people do not notice envelopes, those hard-working postal messengers, but you cannot help admire these. And so will the lucky person receiving them. 

Use them for absolutely any occasion and they will convey how much you care. They are the anti-thesis of a text message. Or a blog post.

We left the protective film on these cards, hence the shininess.
