Welcome! In the pages that follow, you’ll find letterpress printed cards and postcards, handbound albums and journals, and a variety of styles, materials, colors, and patterns, textures, and subtle contrasts. Our assortment of new letterpress cards includes postcards, greeting cards, and journals using a series of Maggie’s natural history and illustrations. There are also fun and delicate constellation journals, and modern Moroccan designs. In this year’s holiday selections, you’ll also be happy to see our snow angel cards return, among other seasonal designs and an assortment of vibrant colors. When it comes to books, you’ll find a variety of exposed bindings for both albums and journals, as well as fun new perfect bound journals featuring letterpress printed covers.

Each card is printed by hand, most often on our 1915 Golding Official No. 4 cast iron press. Most importantly, everything we make is designed to be fun, functional, and lasting. We hope you enjoy our work as much as we enjoy making it! - Maggie Campbell & Matt Raw

Natural history letterpress postcards Maybe that history degree made sense after all...and I am a midwestern girl, so I guess it’s no surprise that the natural world has made such inroads in to my designs! These designs are printed from original drawings featuring a variety of insects and arachnids, based on 19th century natural history illustrations. Each postcard measures 6” wide x 4.25” high and is letterpress printed in chocolate brown ink on heavy kraft-brown chipboard. The postcards are available individually, or as a set of 10 cards (one of each design).

Each card is blank inside and is printed on heavy, white 100% cotton stock and these designs are available as individual cards or as boxed sets of 5 cards of the same color and design.
