Personalized letterpress stationery and customized cards from Aloha Letterpress.
Aloha from the island of Maui! My name is Linda Akiyama Coleon. When I am not engaged in letterpress printing, I also enjoy making paper, carving soft blocks, Gocco-ing, binding books and journals, writing. I enjoy creating handmade art that can delight the senses.

The letterpress prints I create are printed with an antique 1900s' Chandler Price Pilot press and a larger Chandler Price 8 x 12 printing press. I fit the type and die cuts into a chase (metal frame) with wooden furniture, making sure that the type and dies are securely fitted into the chase. The ink is prepared and placed on the press ink plate…
