Tasmania: the littlest state in Australia and the one that I call home. This part of the world is renowned for its natural beauty, and with this souvenir postcard, you can tell people just how OK your Tasmanian move, visit, or upbringing is going.

Real talk: I found the image of the house on a printing ornament in the letterpress studio, likely used for a commercial printing job in the 60s or 70s. Houses like this are ubiquitous, unremarkable, and wholly Australian. I created these prints out of nothing but affection for my home state.

This is a limited print run on A6 postcards. The text is printed in turquoise ink & black ink on 100% cotton paper, using vintage metal type on a cylinder bed press.

(Just to be clear: this is not a digital print! You'll know it as soon as you see – and feel – this mini-print.)

Each card is sealed in a cello sleeve (with recycled boxboard backing) for protection in transit.

Amazing!! Absolutely stunning. I purchased these for our showroom. They fit so well. Vendor was very professional and she was able to answer all of my questions. These coasters are very well made. The cork is cut beautifully. They came in a box with a cute little note. Thank you! CP
