"Absolutely gorgeous. The quality is incredible, the art looks even better in person, and I loved the attention to using recycled materials. Definitely going to buy more because I'm not going to be able to resist filling them up!" - JB

This order was such a thrill! There were extras included with my first purchase (several high quality postcards and a lovely note). This will not be my last order. I’m thrilled with this purchase!

Another great Shakespeare print from Obvious State and another perfect gift for my daughter who teaches drama and appreciates the power of the arts to elevate the spirit. Thank you!

These are such beautiful postcards and the paper quality is also solid. The only downside is that these are so pretty I am afraid I'll keep them all instead of mailing them. I'll definitely be ordering more postcards.

This business goes above and beyond my expectations and I love receiving my packages from them! They included a gift this time with beautiful postcards including some of my fave authors quotes that I will be framing! Always packaged with care and thoughtfulness, I will continue to order from them often!

The prints look so elegant, it was difficult to choose only three among the selection on the site. We are trying to make our flat look more like home, and these prints add a very nice touch with their original design.
