The Artist Series

The Artist Series is an ongoing collaboration with invited designers, artists, and writers who create original work for an unusual form: the poster stamp. Upcoming artists include Rebeca Méndez, Kate Bingaman-Burt, and Bráulio Amado with many more to follow. The poster stamps are printed with letterpress, risograph, or digital output on lickable, gummed paper and pinhole perforated by hand on our vintage machines. The sheets are signed and numbered by the artist, and released in a limited edition of 100.
