PUMPERNICKEL PRESS HISTORY
Pumpernickel Press started with a leap of faith by owners Bob & Skeeter Harju in 1998. With Bob’s background in beautiful and unique artwork, and specializing in greeting card production, Pumpernickel Press soon became a leading producer of quality embossed greeting cards.
TOURIST COURTS BRAND HISTORY
In the summer of 2015 Pumpernickel was introduced to Joel Anderson founder of Anderson Design Group (ADG) out of Nashville, TN. Joel and his team are award winning creators of Vintage Poster Art from the US and around the world since 2003. Joel began licensing his Nashville images for the Gift & Souvenir industry in 2014. In September of 2015 Pumpernickel Press began licensing ADG art of National Parks and other American destination sites under the brand name of Tourist Courts. Tourist Courts now has over 2,000 SKUs of products and a library of over 1,800 ADG images from which to choose. These images can be name dropped in the vintage style and ADG will do custom images when applicable.
