Finally, our popular vintage-inspired postcards are back in stock! The flat 3.5x5" cards are letterpress printed on industrial gray chipboard using antique wood and metal type and linoleum blocks. They mimic the light blue and red of the Chicago flag and also feature a hint of our beautiful skyline. Postcards come in a clear sleeve.
We can do sets! If you'd like more than 5, convo for custom pricing info.

____________________________________

Starshaped Press is an old school letterpress shop, meaning that we focus on the craft of good design and great typography. We work strictly with antique wood and metal typefaces for printing, as well as hand carved linoleum cuts, meaning that there is NOT a heavy deboss in the paper, like modern letterpress work. Instead, we endeavor to showcase all of the flaws, inconsistencies and inherent charm of materials that printed for 50 to 100 years before we came along, and, if we do our job correctly, will continue to print when we're long gone.
