Summer Entertaining: Host & Hostess Gifts

Read on to see some of our favourite ways to show your appreciation to your hosts and ensure you snag an invite to the next party all-in-one.

Why do all greeting cards found in Room 2046 belong to the letterpress, screen-print or laser/dye cut variety? Because aside from witty concepts, gorgeous designs, and strong messaging, we love the feel and beauty of finished, crafted products. A letterpress card is no exception to other types of well-made, quality pieces that we carry in the shop. In addition to the precision and attention to detail involved in the process, a letterpress offers a tangible, physical impression to the printed image and lettering that digitally-printed materials fail to replicate.
