We were introduced to our Kluge letterpress through a friend of a friend who knew a pressman who was retiring. I’m not sure what I expected when we stopped by the print shop for the first time—lots of vintage charm, and the hope that you could produce cool prints with the ease of popping toast from a toaster, probably. What we found was an iron beast that needed lots of love and attention. I was scared. I knew I was infatuated with letterpress, but could we learn how to operate it without losing a finger? We made the decision to go for it, and that’s how our operation began. (Happily, we still have all our digits.)
Sweet Afton Studio is located in Omaha, Nebraska.
We are a family-run shop. Krystal has a degree in graphic design and loves creating. Ryan is the web guy as well as the press operator.
Moxie, our boglen terrier, is our mischievous shop…
