Letterpress printing creates a relief print by pressing an inked design into paper. For centuries, it was the main printing method, but now it’s practiced mainly by artisans who appreciate a letterpress print’s unique tactile beauty. Bryce Knudson at Bjørn Press in Provo, Utah does masterful work on our letterpress prints, ensuring our designs are vibrant and sharp.

Letterpress is simply awesome. Combine letterpress with monkeys in spacesuits, multi-limbed aliens and a friendly sit-down for some Calami-TEA. Divine. Hmmm... maybe a new product idea, Don? Calami-TEA... english breakfast please. With a side of green moon cheese. xoxo
I thought my only vice was a serious coffee addiction. Then I bought a Calamityware print for my coffee making counter. Then Mr. Marvelous comes out with another cool print that, oops, I just had to get. And then, DARN THE LUCK, there’s the one in the middle with the gargantuan coffee mug on a flat bed truck being driven by- of all things!- a rabbit. Did I mention that I live in Hare House. Clearly, it was a triptych that I was working my way towards. My wonderful local frame shop agreed and ta-da, I’ve got myself the spiffiest home coffee station I know of. Bonus: The framers loved the art so much I had to talk their ears off and show them the fantastically twisted world of www.Calamityware.com so now like The Flying Spaghetti Monster the gospel is shared with the uninitiated. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.
I love this picture! Such a great whimsical drawing. I have hanging in my kitchen and everyone loves it. Makes me smile to look at!
Absolutely love my print! It is so quirky and delicious!
I gave the print to my sister for her birthday. She loved it. I am such a fan of all things Calamityware!
Beautifully amusing and artistically inspiring!!!
I LOVE this and have it hanging in my Zoom background. I'm also sending an image of it along with my emerging-from-COVID invitations to friends to finally get together in person. It perfectly captures each of us, whichever creature we identify with!
