They're here!


New to the Emporium comes a selection of beautiful cards from Old School Stationers, located in Portland, Oregon. They are a small letterpress studio specializing in the production of handmade cards and wall prints. We really love the "Camping Circa 1960"s" line.
All cards measure 4 x 6" and are blank inside.

"True to our name, we prefer the organic beauty of hand-drawn lines to those created with a mouse and keyboard. Our cards are made one at a time using pencil, paper, ink and 900 pounds of cast iron. Each image is hand-drawn and color-separated by owner Brian Reed.
They are then printed on our old but still nimble 1917 model letterpress. Our thick letterpress paper comes from Milan, Italy where they have been pulping this style of sheet for
over 350 years.

Take a breath, have a cup of tea and write a letter by hand. Your soul will thank you and so will your friends!"
