Our Greeting Cards and Reproduction Prints
We have prepared sets of 14 Greeting Cards displaying each of King's colour images for
Good King Wenceslas and on the left, we show an example of how these Greeting Cards appear.

Multiple purchases will be consolidated by that feature and shipping and handling costs to any destination in the world are accommodated by our flat-rate fee of US$20 for every US$200 worth of purchases.
When presented on Greeting Cards, these images are prepared as tipped-in plates - in homage to the hand-crafted

Hand-finishing is used to replicate the visual appearance of a tipped-in plate and the images are presented on
Ivory card stock (in the case of colour illustrations) or White card stock (in the case of monotone illustrations)
with an accompanying envelope. We have left the cards blank so that you may write your own personal
