They say that the forest is the green gold of Finland. That’s why we have wooden versions of our postcards. They are, naturally enough, printed in Finland – on Finnish birch plywood.
Best of all: You can use them as ordinary postcards! Thickness: 3 mm.

These are prints that stand the test of time. Every product is unique – it’s printed on real wood! So please note: variations in colour and structure might appear.

About the artwork

The route to/from Estonia was already popular in the 1930s, and the competition was just as tough as it is today. Aegna (at that stage without a proper name) was launched in Kiel in 1904. She served, as Adler, the Hamburg-Amerika line for many years, except during WW I.

Later she was sold to a company called G.Sergo & Ko in Tallinn that renamed her Aegna. As you can see from the poster, she served on the route Tallinn-Helsinki during the late 1930s.

When the Soviet Union annexed Estonia, Aegna was put in the war effort. After a severe storm she sank in November 1944, just by the island of Aegna (!) north of Tallinn. Today she’s lying at approx 5 meters depth and is a popular destination for divers.
