Flag down friends with these nautical signal flag postcards letterpressed on sturdy chipboard stock by Seattle-based Constellation & Co.! They’re perfect for spelling out everything from names to secret coded messages.
These handmade, eco-friendly cards begin their lives as letters and flag representations carved into linoleum; these carvings are then used to press inked versions of the designs into 100% recycled chipboard. The flags themselves are from the International Code of Signals, used by ships to communicate important information across distance and language barriers since the nineteenth century.
