One of my most laugh-out-loud finds at this past National Stationery Show was Steam Whistle Press. This handset range of colorful cards easily distinguishes itself from the letterpress pack due to its use of vintage wood type and halftone cuts. While they are beautiful creations in and of themselves, I just find them brilliantly funny, living up to their tagline of “often reprinted, never duplicated.”
Shop the clever Cincinnati range here. Each card is $4.50/pop — and there’s plenty of fun finds like rubber stamps and art prints. There’s even a Red Ball Letterpress Hat ($20) to keep your ears warm as you proclaim your love of the artform!
