Museum Shop Products
Big Wheel Press has worked in conjunction with prominent museums creating original letterpress product for their gift shops as well as prints for their collections. Our greeting cards, pocket notebooks and gift items are in museum stores around the world including the Morgan Library and Museum, The Huntington Library, and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Our work is in the collections of the University of Massachusetts Contemporary Art Museum, the Mead Museum at Amherst College, and Historic Northampton in Northampton, Massachusetts. We create greeting cards personalized to your organization. Historic images can be reproduced and turned into profit centers in your shop.
We have a minimum of only 25 units whether it be a custom greeting card, broadside, or historic reproduction. Designs are created with your input, making the final project unique to your store. Only the highest quality papers and ink are used. Much of our equipment is over 100 years old. All are made in the USA.
If your museum has antique engravings in their collection that you would like to reproduce you can be assured of the safety of these items. Often we will just make one impression off of an antique block, then clean and archivally treat the block for future longevity. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for inquiries.
