When you make a good meal, you want to share it (or at least keep the recipe on file for future dinner parties). Portland, Oregon-based letterpress company Egg Press has designed a new series of recipe cards to help you do so in an ever-so-elegant way.

The new three-inch-tall, five-inch-wide, folded cards fit in a standard-size recipe box and feature a die-cut window for easily identifying the recipe you're looking for. Inside, the space above the fold is designed for listing ingredients and the space below (and continuing onto the back) is for writing out the instructions.

The front of each eye-catching card is letterpressed with an all-over pattern. The Jars, Veggie, and Sand Dollar cards feature whimsical designs while the Yum, Food, and Cook cards play with bold graphics and type.
