Developed during a summer vacation, these cards were inspired by long afternoons spent on the shores of a handful of lakes in Northern Michigan. You can drive five miles in any direction and stumble upon a beautiful, pristine body of water. As a result, the area is plastered in new and vintage signage pointing you to this lake and that. This series is an homage to a lakeside summer: grab some sun and take a dip. Each card is cut, printed and packaged by hand.
