Carey Johnson's Profile
After apprenticing with the Alembic Press in Oxfordshire, England in 2003, I came home to Northern California and eventually started Manzanita Press in Oakland. My studio is located below my apartment, here at the edge of the San Francisco Bay. My press is an "old-style" cast-iron Chandler and Price. It runs on pedal power, without a motor.
I strive to print on all-cotton and other tree-free papers, recycled paper, or leftover paper from larger jobs. I love making handmade boxes to complete my stationery sets. Everything I make can be personalized and customized. A custom box may be ordered for any stationery set, whether or not a box is pictured. All boxed stationery sets come gift-wrapped.
Send me the name and/or address you'd like on your stationery, and I will send you a proof. Once you approve your proof, you can buy the example…
