Beautiful cards AND raising money for a great cause.

Seeing this online, I could tell that you'd gotten the waiting-and-yet-maybe-just-about-to-go-to-sleep pit bull just right, but the card itself is so beautifully printed that it is more art piece than greeting card. It is really special and I'm glad to have found it. This will be a birthday card for my partner who so loves our vivacious and dear pit mix, Snookie. Best to you and Possum.

About

Old Technology, Meet New Technology

I'll never forget the first time I saw a letterpress machine... I had no idea what I was looking at, but I immediately knew I had to find out. That beat-up Vandercook, abused by decades of college students, awakened some primal desire to delve into an inky world of small moving parts and minute machine adjustments. It was a challenge I desperately needed. Clandestine Press was born out an obsession to know all there was to know about the black art of letterpress, and to use old technology for my own new ideas. I now produce a line of stationery, coasters and other paper ephemera, and also print custom business cards, invitations and announcements. I love that my presses, ranging from 70-100 years old, are still noisily cranking out beautiful prints as if they were fresh out of the factory. As an inventor, consumer and lover of beautifully made things, the lasting and evolving value of letterpress continues to amaze me and drives me to keep making.

Clandestine Press started in an Oakland, CA apartment, expanded to a shared space in San Francisco's historic Mission District in 2011 and moved to our own spacious studio in beautiful Mendocino County in January 2015. We currently operate the following equipment:
Vandercook Model 219 (1945)
Chandler and Price 10x15 (1925)
Chandler and Price 8x12 (1921)
