About

Passionately Playing With Type

B.IMPRESSED started with a birthday card. I was studying design and always loved typography, but working on the computer wasn't for me. I found letterpress through a book-trimming trip to the letterpress shop on campus. Once I was inside I knew I needed to return ASAP. I took a workshop and immediately felt the connection of hand to my work I've been missing on the computer. The traditional process forces me to work slowly and is physical - searching through type, getting my hands grimy and then running the presses. Leaving after a full day in the shop, my mind and body feel fulfilled - and tired, haha.

I work with hand-set metal and wood type, because I love the traditional process behind letterpress printing, as much as, the resulting printed piece. Working with type I'm hand selecting each piece of type as I set up forms for printing, so I get to work with the type directly. After I've looked through lots of type cases and am working with the type I've selected, there's always a design moment when the type starts to work together where it feels like I got it - that's my favorite part of the process.

Designing and printing cards feels natural, because I've always enjoyed making special cards and gifts for friends and family. The smaller size format for designing is also something I'm drawn to and inspired by. Written notes are something I always save and when I'm working I like to imagine how my products will be saved once received.
