About the Design:
"The Great Smoky Mountains" bookmark is inspired by my childhood in the Great Smoky Mountains. The inks used in this product are all made right here in North Carolina. It makes a great gift for the bookworm who— when they’re not too busy reading— prefers to be outside.
This particular bookmark is made from a hand carved soft linoleum block.
The printed area of this artwork measures approximately 2 Inches wide by 8 inches tall.
The sturdy, 130 lb cardstock made using sustainable forestry practices and 100% wind energy. It is mounted onto an archival 2ply backing board.
Each Bookmark is shipped in a clear protective "eco-sleeve", which is made from plants and is commercially compostable.

About Block Printing:
Block prints often have slight textures and variations in the finished products. I think that's why I love them-- each one is special. Please be aware that, while I aim for consistency within each edition, there may be slight variations with each print and colors may differ from your computer screen.
Shipping and Production:
Please allow up to a week of time for your artwork to be printed and to dry thoroughly. If you need a faster turnaround time, message me and I'll do my best to accommodate you.
