Endearingly scathing letterpress greetings

Behind Lady Pilot Letterpress is the one-woman force, Emily Wismer. Based in Wilmington, North Carolina, Wismer juxtaposes classical illustrations with wicked lines for special occasions in her letterpress greetings, As she states on her website, her specialty is in the arena of ‘sarcastic and sweet letterpressed greeting cards’.

We really dig the baby congratulations one showing a dad lifting his baby boy and going, ‘Aye, this one will bring a good price at market’. You’ll either find these really amusing or be quite offended. There’s no middle ground.
