This set of five postcards, one each for Lakes Michigan, Superior, Huron, Erie, and Ontario, was created as a tribute to Curt Teich & Co., the firm that revolutionized the postcard industry in the 1930s with their dreamy, photographic, hand-retouched “Art-Colortone” linen cards. They’re all ready for a stamp and a few witty lines to bring a little old-school joy to the mailboxes of your friends and family.

  1. Proudly printed by the good people of Active Graphics, Cicero, Ill.
