Wasps are interesting creatures. They like sweet fruits and are often found eating late season raspberries and grapes. If you consider them a nuisance, it's a worthy endeavor to credit their benefits in nature and around the yard.

For example, they are predator insects that actually reduce the number of insect pests in areas where they thrive. There is also their important function as pollinators. In fact, researchers making wine have discovered that wasps store yeast in their stomachs over winter. They bring yeast back to the vineyards in the new season aiding in the natural growth of grapes for harvest.

There are facts and information, but there are also color, line, and shapes. The soothing purple hues on this beautiful card are eye-catching. The grapes shown are plump and enticing to a small soft-orange winged wasp ready to feast.

Saturn Press is an eco-concious company based on Swan's Island off the Maine coast. A married couple works together to make this international business happen. (Jane Goodrich creates the designs, James vanPernis runs the company's 4 antique printing presses, and a sweet gal named Kathy who used to answer the phone recently retired.)

Using an old-fashioned letterpress technique, paper sourced from a sustainable family-run mill, and a love for what they do, Saturn Press creates striking cards that will make a lasting impression no matter who the recipient.

Some folks love the vivid colors and unique images so much they request cards without envelopes to frame and hang them as wall art.
