Minnieolga designs are inspired by Berkeley artist Lauren McIntosh's life long appreciation of prettiness, nature and kindness. All the production is done in Berkeley California using two different printing methods. Some cards are printed by risograph and some by hand block printing using water based inks. Lauren’s son Sennett does the risograph printing while she and her friend Margot do the block printing and finishing details. Environamentally safe glitter is applied by hand. Minnieolga prints on paper that is heavy weight artist grade paper.
It is Minnieolga's hope that people will save and collect their cards as they consider them worthy of framing and display.
