Letterpress Printing

Letterpress printing dates back to the early 15th century, when it simplified the printing process and revolutionized communication. Over the years, it has become less of an everyday necessity and more of an art form. Tactile and textural letterpress has the capacity to make a beautiful impression that can be felt and seen.
We inherited our vintage platen press in the winter of 2014 and with love, devotion, and a succesful Kickstarter campaign we got it up and printing again.


We are excited to work closely with you to create your letterpress project. Whether you’re looking to make your mark on business cards, stationery or wedding invitations we would be delighted to help you bring your ideas to life.

We enjoy working closely with our clients and love it when we get to meet with you in our shop on the island! But we realize that is not always a reality. Below is some information to help you get started. In most cases, our response time with a quote is 1-2 days.
