What We're About
We love what we do. A lot. Please bear with us while we get a little cheesy.
We love the tangible quality of letterpress – that our stationery encourages real human connection. We don’t know anyone who doesn’t get excited to receive a letter or card in the mail; there’s a bit of magic in a note from your faraway loved one — something you’ve read so many times the edges are frayed. We print to share our passion for written communication, and hopefully to inspire people to communicate for real, by hand, with a pen rather than through a device.
We love working closely with our clients. Getting to know them and taking the time to understand what they need is important to us. At the end of the day we’re here to create materials that authentically reflect who they are and what they do – and help them stand out from their competition. The answer might not always be letterpress. We love to make one-of-a-kind pieces by using multiple printing techniques, offset, digital. We’ve got the ideas and the team to pull that off.
We love design. And we know design – from fashion to landscape architecture to graphic design, all of which inspire and inform what and how we create. Like many designers, we’re a bit obsessive compulsive. Our built-in press check would satisfy the most discerning eyes (we’re talking to you, fellow designers). And paper – we’re pretty crazy about that too. We’ve curated a collection of gorgeous papers that are beautiful for letterpress printing.
We love our machines. Oh, how we love our machines, the way a mechanic loves a classic car. More than that, we respect them and steward them. There will never be more like these, and we love and appreciate them all the more for it.
We love to share our love. We get endless satisfaction out of hosting workshops, encouraging people to come in see what an incredible experience it is to make a form and print it themselves. Their reaction to what they’re created? Love it, every time.
And we love that after decades of decline, letterpress has made a comeback. Thanks to people like you, who share our appreciation for any opportunity in this too-fast, too-digital time to slow down and appreciate the beautiful and the tactile. Thank you for being part of the revival of letterpress. Let’s make something together, shall we?
