We’ve taken the sometimes sassy and sometimes sweet sentiments of Georgia O’Keeffe and brought them to a line of luxurious letterpress stationery. Working with local company, Penumbra Letterpress, we’ve paired luxe textured paper with beautiful and timeless quotes from O’Keeffe that are as relevant today as they were when she first said them. Send “You are one of my nicest thoughts” to an old friend or someone far away; it’ll light up their day to know that you’re thinking about them.
Tender-Heart Press was founded by E. “Oscar” Maynard in 2017 in Oakland, CA . Oscar makes letterpress posters rooted in heart wisdom, collective healing, and liberatory spellwork. Since 2017 they have created their work in various print shops across the country including Berkeley, Santa Fe, Silver City NM, Detroit, Houston & Atlanta. In 2020, they bought a Vandercook SP-20, which began its life as a proof press for a Newspaper in Wisconsin. Tender-Heart Press accepts commercial and custom jobs, in addition to crafting and selling their own prints. Oscar loves the smell of the ink, the rhythm of the press, and the slow process of laying type by hand.
