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.

It's beautifully printed and I love it! It arrived quickly and in perfect shape - great packing. My only problem is that my home decor is quickly becoming a style I guess I should refer to as "Calamity" - which, come to think of it, describes my housekeeping. Anyhoo, the print is super. Thanks!
I was compelled to buy this because souvenirs of the pandemic are hard to come by and some day I thought I may want to look back and remember how GREAT a job I did at both social distancing and remaining positive by reminding myself that things could always be worse.
This is lovely. At first glance, I thought it was a pocket watch. Any chance of that happening?
I have a disturbing variety of Calamityware items around my house, the latest of which is this lovely “Locations...” print, which will forever remind me of extreme pandemic social distancing. The original mat was damaged a bit in shipping, but the busy gnomes at Calamityware responded quickly and sent a replacement mat in no time. Thanks!
This is my first visit to this website and I'm enjoying it tremendously, thinking about what I'd like to get for gifts for those on my Christmas shopping list. When I came across this print, I actually thought it was a Christmas ornament. Please consider bringing this print to life as an ornament.
This is awesome and so perfect for the current times! Excellent quality, fast secure shipping. Just waiting on the frame to arrive. Thanks bunches Calamity Ware!
this is absolutely lovely! but then aren't all things "calamity"?! seriously, though, this is a great print and matted very nicely. can't wait to frame it and hang it. have the spot already picked out so i can look at it while at my computer.
Love this print. As soon as I saw it, I thought of Saint Exupery’s little prince on his own planet. Of course his house looked like that! My husband, who makes and repairs clocks, thought of it as an exquisite timepiece. It makes us both happy! The print travelled well, and as. Always working with the Calamity workshop’s elves and giant robots was a real pleasure.
The print is amazing. I love everything about it.
A wonderful print on quality paper. Shipped in a very timely manner.
