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
In the 1930s Finland started to realize what the tourists really wanted. They wanted something truly exotic: They wanted peace and nature.
One of the people who actively contributed to spreading the message about Finland being a nature paradise was the Swedish graphic designer and artist Ingrid Högström-Bade (1908–1989).
This poster were originally commissioned by the tourism promotion organisation Suomen-Matkat / Finlandsresor in co-operation with the Finnish State Railways. It was printed at the famous Finnish printing house Tilgmann. There’s actually also a boy version of this poster in the same style and color, but we’ve never managed to find an original. The hunt continues!
