Hello and welcome! Lennah Press is a one-woman letterpress print shop located in the Washington D.C. area.
The origin of letterpress printing is usually attributed to Johannes Gutenberg, who invented the printing press and movable type around 1440 AD. It remained the standard form of printing until the second half of the 20th century when new, cost-effective and speedier technology took over. Not too shabby for a German blacksmith!
Lennah Press is currently a two press shop, operating a Vandercook SP-15 circa 1962, and a Chandler and Price Pilot Press circa 1950. Each card, print and invitation that comes off of these presses is a one-of-a-kind beauty unmatched by any other printing process out there.If you’ve ever held a letterpress card in your hand, you immediately notice that it’s different than all other types of printing…
