Call us nostalgists, but we believe the demise of print has been greatly exaggerated.
Hard-copy case in point: the conceptual paper goods from Colpa Press. Grad school besties Carissa Potter and Luca Antonucci — the right-brained masterminds behind throwback newsstand Edicola — produce small-batch postcards and prints guaranteed to revive penned longings.
Potter is the jokesmith, drawing droll city maps — a parenthetical below the Golden Gate Bridge reads “actual bridge is red” — and dark-humored breakup cards (“I don’t want to date … I might be down for sex?”). Antonucci considers infinity and beyond with black-and-white constellation screen prints augmented with one-word musings (“Never.” “Forever.”).
Freethinkers can order custom, cheeky wedding invites (a “How to Tie a Knot” illustration) and drawn business cards that are too good looking to get buried in the stack.
Print is dead. Long live print.
