Fisher’s Paradise, Ontario (northwest of North Bay) hosts the three-day River & Sky festival this weekend, which features a plethora of Canadian musicians (Shotgun Jimmie, Absolutely Free, Jennifer Castle, Homeshake…) and plenty of space to pitch a tent. We printed their gig poster this year, available at our Kensington location.

Our home and native land may have just turned 148 years young, but why not keep the celebration alive with some visually pleasing and patriotic postcards? Kingston, Ontario’s Everlovin’ Press brought together 10 Canadian illustrators and designers from coast to coast to create these Greetings From Canada postcards. This first volume features the work of Vancouver’s Riley Cran, Rory O’Sullivan, and Tom Froese; Genevieve Simms and Studio Tipi of Edmonton, AB; Toronto’s Doublenaut, Jacqui Oakley, and Kate O’Connor; Benjamin Nelson of Kingston, ON; and Yo Rodeo studio from Halifax, N.S. They may have sold out online, but we’ve got them in stock at our Kensington location, eh? (Sorry about that one).
Set of 10 4″ x 6″, 2 colour letterpress print on cotton board. Designed by various artists. $40, at our Kensington location.

Give these beauties a gander: a grizzly bear guzzling gold (erm, maple syrup), the Canadian tuxedo, a modified hamburger CN Tower…
East meets West; Ontario based Everlovin’ Press and B.C’s Tom Froese have collaborated on a first-of-its-kind project to showcase Canada’s creative talent and elevate the art of letterpress!
The finished product is a beautiful collection of 10 limited edition letterpressed postcards, which is available now in our storefront, priced at $40.
Each Postcard is designed by a Canadian artist, illustrator or designer, reppin’ Toronto we have ‘Doublenaut‘ and ‘Jacqui Oakley‘.
