What is Letterpress?
Letterpress printing is the way everything was printed from the 1400s until the 1950s. Letterpress is a relief method of printing that leaves an impression on the paper. The depth of that impression is what draws so many people to the “feel” of letterpress. Today's printing methods cannot duplicate this impression and the imperfections that are inherent in letterpress printing.

We print all our projects on a Chandler & Price printing press that was made in the 1940s. We use metal and wood typefaces and hand mix all of our inks. These methods combine to create an imperfect — yet personal and hand-crafted feel to the piece.
