West Third at Williams
The First in Flight postcard celebrates the achievements of Wilbur and Orville Wright. Designed and printed in Ohio.
The following quote is printed in small type on the mailing side: “We could not understand that there was anything about a bird that would enable it to fly that could not be built on a larger scale and used by man.”—Orville Wright
While best known for their achievements in flight, the Wright brothers began as letterpress printers. Our handcrafted journals, postcards, greeting cards and art prints celebrate the inventive nature personified by the brothers. Paper goods are letterpress printed on Igloo Letterpress’ antique presses dating from 1892–1962.
