Leave a Paper Trail with Colpa Press

Printed matters of cards and stationery

colpa press!

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.

Available at Merch, 629 Haight Street, between Pierce and Steiner Streets (415-503-1522 or shop-merch.com); at colpapress.com, $5-$35.
