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
Take a deep breath.
Because now we have reached the very essence of these cheerful greetings from Finland.
We’re talking about this masterpiece by Helge Mether-Borgström’s, where a ship sails into the land of thousand lakes from the west.
So simple, but oh how mesmerizing.
Mether-Borgström isn’t any old graphic designer. It was he who 1954 created Marimekko’s logo.
But looking at this iconic poster we really have just one question: Who was the virtuoso who came up with the slogan Finlande – Pays de la Romance?
Give this wordsmith a retroactive raise!
And a spot on the TV-show Mad Men.
