Every now and then, we like to send printed matters by traditional means—post—to our relations. They can be holiday closing notifications, new year’s greetings, or other types of mailings. With each, we hope to put a smile on the recipient’s face.
New Year’s greeting  •  新年贺卡
Production: letterpress on 10-guilder Dutch bank note • 生产方式: 打印在十荷盾钞票上
Print run 印数: 50x
When the Dutch government replaced the guilder with the euro, it brought an end to centuries long history of a currency and of beautifully designed banknotes. To pay a last tribute to the Dutch guilder, on the first year of euro’s distribution in the Netherlands, we sent our relations 10-guilder banknotes with our New Year’s greeting letter pressed on the backside.

The message of this holiday closing notification was set in the form of a luggage overprinting using vintage postcards of picturesque sceneries. The written personal messages from the original senders travelled for a second time to strangers of a different era. They offered a moment of mind escape for the new recipients of these cards.
