Landmark prints

Collectible keepsakes that celebrate your memories

Why do we make State Icons?

Everyone has a story. Tell yours visually! Maybe you’re madly in love with the town you grew up in. Or you got engaged at a kooky location. Perhaps you’ve lived in 26 different cities. Pay tribute to the places that are special to you with State Icons.

Our high-quality, mini framed landmark prints celebrate the nation's iconic buildings, signs, sculptures, and statues. These illustrations will continually remind you of the places you love. They also make meaningful, memorable gifts that will last for generations.

Meaningful, collectible keepsakes

State Icons are memories in a frame. They highlight national landmarks that are historic, quirky, and everything in between. Whether recognized worldwide or known only by locals, we understand the attachments you have to 'em.

Anyone can hang a mass-produced poster of an international monument they bought at a big-box store. (Snore.) Wouldn't you rather decorate your home with handmade art that pays tribute to the cities and states you know and love?

Made by hand in small batches

Christy draws her State Icons with a mouse (yes, you read that correctly) on her computer, and carefully prints them in her studio with archival-grade paper and inks. She then places the high-quality giclées into wood frames that her parents make by hand. Incredible, eh?

The frames are lightweight yet sturdy, and thick in depth, so they can stand on their own on a shelf, desk, or any flat surface. Or they're ready for your wall since each has a hanger on the back.

How it all began

Our founder and CEO, Christy Johnson, started working as a freelance graphic designer and artist in 2003 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. A life-long creative, she's loved to draw since she was a kid.

Over time Christy developed a unique style of illustrating, and began creating her minimalistic, graphic prints. When you set misty eyes on a State Icon, or share the hilarious connection you have to one, it motivates her to keep drawing these unmistakable and meaningful mementos.
