The Artist Series

An ongoing collaboration with invited designers, artists, and writers who create original work for an unusual form: the poster stamp.

We release new Artist Series stamps monthly. Announcements go out in our newsletter and on Instagram.

The sheets are signed and numbered by the artist, each in a limited edition of 100. All our poster stamps are printed on lickable, gummed paper and pinhole perforated by hand on our vintage machines.
