We were thrilled to have been given this lovely vintage printing plate of our beloved hometown! It includes some of the historical sites of our fair city that no longer exist but remain in memory. It's printed in dark gray ink, with a subtle pale blue added to the shaded areas. The card measures approx. 5" square when folded and is printed on recycled white cardstock. It comes with a kraft envelope.
Card is packaged in a clear sleeve.

____________________________________

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.
