chicago el pencil set

Regular price$13.00

  • Handcrafted in Chicago

like most chicagoans, i think chicago is the greatest city ever. this includes are transportation. i've traveled to many cities and taken public transportation and gotten lost a lot. sure it's a great way to explore but not really ideal. chicago's train system is intuitive. like its people, it just works. this pencil set is inspired by the trains, which are identified more by the color than the destination. for example, i live off the brownline. my college was off the red line. if i'm going to the airport i'm on the blue line or orange line. it just makes sense.

    letterpress printed with care

    All our letterpress goods are handcrafted by us, in our Chicago shop. Each card is fed through our antique press, one sheet at a time, one color printed each time. Sure, it takes more time and expertise but we think the beautiful impression of the paper combined with the vibrant ink are worth it. Each card is truly a labor of love.
