Castlemainia is our attempt at filling a gap in the market. We knew there was a lack of stylish, design-led, high quality paper souvenirs for this area. We created stylised line drawings of rooftops of Castlemaine, Maldon, Daylesford and The Goldfields and made separate cards for each. They are printed with gold ink and we have blind embossed each one with the alchemist’s symbol for gold. As they are blank in the middle they can be used for any reason.

At the moment they are in stock at the Castlemaine Visitors’ Centre, Stonemans Bookroom, Falkner Gallery (all in Castlemaine) and Cascade Print Room in Maldon.
