Root Hog

My momma’s family is from Arkansas. And I’ve never met a sweeter, harder-nosed bunch of folks. 

So when I heard the phrase ‘Root Hog, Or Die’ and found out that it was an old idiom for self-reliance, I was sold. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that there’s a bunch of Hogs up in the Ozarks who the state pulls for every Saturday. But I’m going to stick with my story about a bunch of good, practical folks in the Arkansas Territory. Cause I mean it.

What goes into an Old Try letterpress print?

Love. History. Cut hands. And a little bit of cussing.

Beautiful design & high quality

Received this as a gift, and I'm thrilled with it. I'm proud to be able to hang something that represents my state well, and the design looks simply fantastic. High quality, to the point that I purchased another Old Try print when I saw how good it looked. Would recommend.

Five stars and nothing less

This was our second purchase from The Old Try. Their prints make for such a warm welcome in our Atlanta home. Each product is made in the US and made with intention. The company (Micah) is super thorough in communicating order & shipping information (and awesome follow-up emails). Love this'un and all the rest! Thanks again!
