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 fish are BIG in Finland. Yes, Finland is the best – in every possible sense!!!

Don’t believe us? Well, then you really should read this short extract from a travel brochure from the late 1920s:

”No other country in the world can provide such opportunitiesfor boating, fishing, bathing and camping. Finland has over thirty-five thousand lakes, and the number of islands is uncountable.

Look at the map. It looks almost as though someone had split the inkbottle over it, leaving scarcely a corner untouched.

The rivers, lakes and rapids abound with fish. The scenery has a charm all its own, which is not to be found in any other part of the world.

And the light summer nights … these have to be experienced … one cannot describe them … but they are probably the most wonderful of all Finland’s attractions.”
