{ FACILITIES }

Our studio is simple and cozy just a few paces away from the center of beautiful Fairfax California. The studio currently houses our beloved #4 Vandercook proof press (circa 1953) accompanied by a bucket of patience and elbow grease!

{ LETTERPRESS }

Dating back hundreds of years, letterpress printing is a process where the raised surface of a form, such as lead type or a cut linoleum block, is inked and then pressed directly into the paper. The result is a print that has a characteristically tactile quality to it, with a satisfying impression that you can feel and see.

At A Thousand Thank Yous, each piece is handfed and hand-cranked on our vintage #4 Vandercook proof press. The process is slow and steady, printing one color at a time. We pride ourselves on our craftsmanship and our attention to detail, but we also embrace the quirks and character that result from this vintage process. We utilize and reference a wide range of materials and influences to create our work, from vintage type and old woodblocks to contemporary photopolymer plates, making the work versatile and uniquely our own.
