About

Dempsey Press Incorporated is an old-school printing studio—they’re quirky, but not “in-your-face” about it, like those people who use old paint buckets for baskets on their vintage bicycles.

After traveling through Europe experiencing design, print and croissants in their purest forms, Vanessa Dempsey and Mike Freeman returned to Canada a few pounds heavier and aflame with inspiration.

Dempsey Press Incorporated is an old-school printing studio—they’re quirky, but not “in-your-face” about it, like those people who use old paint buckets for baskets on their vintage bicycles.

Heidelberg Presses are both mechanical wonders and terrifying monsters. They’re rare, require far too much maintenance and are a constant threat to fingers, hands and misplaced croissants, but they produce work of exquisite beauty.

In short, there’s nothing like them.

Combining newer technologies with traditional printing techniques, Dempsey Press indulges an obsession (a good one, not a creepy one) with thick, lush papers like the super classy Reich Savoy pure 100% Cotton Paper.
