About

Pheasant Press

Pheasant Press is based in Fort Smith, Arkansas at my home studio. My work is influenced by my love of vintage ephemera. I am a big estate sale and flea market shopper, and I'm always on the lookout for something to inspire me.

I first became interested in letterpress printing when I was researching my wedding invitations back in 2005. I was smitten by all the gorgeous letterpress invitations I saw and knew this was an art I wanted to learn more about. I began researching and studying everything I could about how the old presses worked. My father owns an industrial plant, so I was somewhat familiar with large machinery, and he was able to help me get my first press.

Everything I learned about printing I taught myself or learned from my friends on Briar Press. I practiced for a few years before finally setting up a shop on Etsy, and I've been happily printing ever since.
