About

Bringing Back a Lost Artform

Hello! We are Janelle & Shane, a husband and wife team that love to create things together. Not only are we best friends, we're business partners and along with our son Lincoln and dog Lily, a small team of family, friends, and staff we are Paisley Dog Press. Our craftsmen (and women) are putting a new spin on the centuries old art of letterpress printing. Our work combines newfangled ideas with century old equipment and a 550-year-old printing process to tell new stories through unique, inspired paper goods.

How We Started Paisley Dog Press.
With backgrounds in graphic design and marketing, we were researching hand-rendered typography for a client project which, in a roundabout way, introduced us to the world of letterpress printing. After much research we decided to follow our hearts, instead of our heads, and drove to Brooklyn, NY to buy our first press. Armed with ink, an oil can, and ton of paper we dove head first into all things letterpress. Over the next few years we experimented with countless papers, materials, inks, and techniques determined to break the rules thought to be the boundaries of the letterpress technique. Combining the skills from our tests with knowledge from formal instruction and some really old dusty books we developed our own unique style, then the orders began pouring in and our hobby became a business.

Our first press, a Chandler & Price circa 1892, is still in use and has lovingly been named Franklin. Frank holds a special place in our hearts for taking so much abuse and for getting us to where we are today. He no longer has to shoulder the workload alone as our print studio has grown into a “family” of antique equipment and presses. Since our start in 2008, the print studio has relocated to the GoggleWorks Center for the Arts, to accommodate our growing company and family of antique equipment. GoggleWorks Center for the Arts, the country’s largest, most comprehensive interactive arts center is a historic factory building that houses galleries; classrooms; dance and music studios; a darkroom; a glass blowing facility; a woodshop; ceramics and jewelry studios; a 131-seat film theatre; 34 artist studios and a premier wedding and event rental facility.

Why We Letterpress.

Going against the grain is nothing new to us and is a large reason we have totally fallen in love with letterpress. Paisley Dog Press began because we believe this so-called dying art is still very much alive and the need to unplug from the world and make something from scratch, something human is crucial. Each piece we press, we touch at least 6 times and use the finest inks and 100% recycled paper to create something with warmth and life. Running a growing company can get a little crazy, but when you're having so much fun – work doesn't always seem so much like, well...work:)

    Letterpress Printer, Owner, Designer

    Hi, I'm Janelle Paisley: I'm a designer & letterpress printer. I love to use rich textured patterns (with a deep impression) and play with modern color combinations & techniques, showcasing the unique qualities of letterpress printing.

  • Shane Paisley

    Owner, Letterpress Printer

    Hey There Haus! I hung up my corporate soul-crushing gig as a stock broker to print letterpress & travel the US acquiring gorgeous antique cast iron beasts to add to the shop. Hand-mixing custom ink & maintaining the equipment keeps me pretty busy.

  • Tamika

    Printer's Devil

    I’m Tamika a.k.a. Printer's Devil. I can often be found scurrying about the shop with ink on my nose & up to my elbows. I love the energy in the shop! Music blaring, cast iron clanking & you never know when someone may lose a finger ;)

  • Janelle K

    Letterpress Printer & Designer

    Guten Tag! With German roots, I was clearly born to work in a print shop. I'm in my element when printing on our Vandercook whilst deviling & designing in between. Nothin' gets the blood pumpin' like a killer design mixed with ink & heavy cast iron.
