Herd of Turtles


Herd of Turtles


Here in the South we have a few choice, colloquial sayings. Our Southern Lines letterpress greeting card collection highlights just a few of these fabulous phrases. Off like a herd of turtles has often been heard uttered by dads across millennia. You might be slow moving, but you're on your way just the same. You might send this card to someone graduating (especially one who took his or her time), to a dad who has said this more than once, or to someone embarking on a new journey. We printed this using natural inks and tree-free cotton paper on an antique letterpress—every color and every print is pulled by hand in small batches.
