A letter from the NASA to a 'Miss Kelly', the first woman ever to attempt to go to space!

Sadly 'Miss Kelly' was not granted permission, and the first woman in space was Sally Ride, a whole 21 years later!

Noticing the fabulous design...? Take a look below, where we share the secret of just exactly how these were made:

  1. The envelope is litho printed four colour process onto 170gsm UPM Fine via Heidelberg press
  2. The insert is digitally printed four colour process onto 350gsm UPM Fine on our Ricoh 7110
  3. Print finishing including embossing and UV varnish to the stamp, and silver foiling to 7 stars on the envelope is completed
  4. The flat sheets are die cut to size before being converted to the finished envelope!
