About

For the love of letterpress

I'm originally from Ottawa, Ontario, but moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia to attend school. I have both a BA and an MA in English literature.

I got into letterpress printing in early 2010 when I was introduced to the Letterpress Gang, a group of people who preserve an old print shop in the heart of Halifax by maintaining and using the equipment, and educating others on the joys of hand-setting type for print.

I found I loved letterpress so much that I wanted to start printing on my own, so I bought a tabletop Kelsey Excelsior 3x5 printing press. It's small (and therefore my prints are small), but it has been a good teaching tool for my craft. More recently, I acquired a slightly larger Adana HQ/QH tabletop press.

I wanted to open up shop so that I could share some of my work with others in the hopes that someone, somewhere, finds some joy in giving or receiving (or even just looking at) something I made from my heart.

I make letterpress printed items. While I always make and print the best items I can, there will be individual variation. That's what makes handmade items so fantastic: even when they're made in multiples, each piece is unique.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
PayPal is preferable, but if you cannot pay via PayPal please contact me for other arrangements.
Shipping
I will ship items 1-3 days after payment is received. Small items will be sent via letter-mail. Larger items may need to be shipped by small packet surface. Expedited shipping is an option, but it will cost more. Insurance and tracking are extra. Please contact me if you have specific shipping needs.

I will combine shipping for multiple purchases on a case-by-case basis. If the shipping turns out to be substantially less than what you've paid, I will issue a PayPal refund.

All taxes, duties, and other fees for shipping internationally are the responsibility of the buyer.
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds and exchanges will only be done on a case-by-case basis. If the item you receive is not what you ordered, please let me know and I will send you the correct item. If the item is what you ordered, but does not match the description or photos in the listing, please let me know.

Please be careful to read the entire description and materials list to be sure of what you are getting. If a detail has been left out of the description (such as size), please let me know and I will fix the listing.

Keep in mind that every monitor displays colors differently. Also, the lighting in which a picture was taken can affect how you perceive the colour. Therefore, your item may not be identical in colour to what you see on your screen. In many cases--such as with greeting cards and other multiples--you won't receive the exact item pictured, and some variation is to be expected with hand-printed items. The differences are very minute, but if you have any concerns about this please let me know.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am available to do custom work, depending on the size and complexity of what you are looking for. And if I can't do it for you, I know others who can! Please contact me if you have any questions.
