Thanks for visiting! We started in 2009 in our home city of Chicago, Illinois. In June of 2012 we moved operations to the San Francisco Bay Area. Cards and limited edition prints are all letterpress printed on a vintage Vandercook #3 proof press or a cylinder press. Due to the nature of letterpress printing, it's not always worth it to take on custom jobs or color changes because when I do print I like to print a few hundred cards at once or between 75-200 limited edition prints. Setting up the press not only takes time, but so does cleaning, scoring, cutting down prints, and numbering. This is not a cut and paste process, therefor, I cannot take on personal color changes or size changes.
