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
Poster competitions began to be popular in the 1950s and they obviously served their purpose, since many of the great works of the decade were the result precisely of a competition.
In the mid-1950s the city of Tampere wished to find new visual ways of promoting the town. In other words, it was time to organise a poster competition.
64 entries were sent in, and in joint second place came this happy poster by Rolf Christianson.
