Suminagashi, derived from the Japanese words for "floating ink," is the ancient art of marbling that originated in the 12th century. Our collection features two Suminagashi prints, each reproduced on notecards to offer you a distinctive pattern. You can choose to purchase a single card or a set with both designs. The cards have blank interiors, providing plenty of space for composing your own heartfelt message.

Additional Information About Our Products:
- Our maker's mark logo is stamped on the reverse side of each full and half size sheet identifying it as an authentic piece hand marbled in our studio. There may also be pencil or pen marks on the reverse side identifying which side we should marble. After being marbled, sheets are typically numbered on the back in pencil noting the paper size and style number. This information is not visible from the front of the paper. These characteristics are indicative of an authentic original piece of hand marbled paper. We feel that these add to the artisan quality of the product and the unique charm of the handmade process.
- Due to the wet nature of the marbling process there may be traces of paint on the reverse side. This characteristic is also indicative of an authentic original piece of hand marbled paper that adds to the artisan quality and the unique charm of the handmade process.
