Old News - Letterpress Greeting Cards

Tin Can Valley Printing

Regular price $6.00 Sale

The 'Old News' series of letterpress cards consist of advertising and illustration blocks collected over many years from many of Minnesota's vanishing small town newspapers. Once the hub of the communities they served, the local newspaper now fades from relevance, even as the art of printing it lives on.

A Perfect Pair

Old metal type on blocks from the days of roller rinks and holding hands.

Miss You

A very Minnesotan hello.


These cards are blank inside (for your own message). Includes white A-2 envelope. 

More to come in this series! 


Printed from hand-carved blocks, old newspaper type, and worn-out engravings on antique letterpress equipment.

Tin Can Valley Printing

For years, we've been hounding our friend Craig Kotasek, owner and operator of Tin Can Valley Printing to make his handcrafted illustrated letterpress cards and posters available to more than just lucky local attendees of craft and farmers markets. He finally agreed, but only if we didn't go on at length about how much we love his work.
