I love the ocean, especially the terrifying creatures, so this print is perfect for me! It arrived quickly and was packaged carefully. Thank you, I love it!

Arrived swiftly, despite delays from PayPal and a series of huge blizzards - your commitment to your art is excellent! :) (And I'm glad they come in packs, because I definitely want to hang one on my wall.)

About

Letterpress and screen-printed ephemera from the heart of Somerville Massachusetts

The glass heart press is a scrappy little print shop in Somerville, Massachusetts (right outside of Boston and Cambridge).

We collaborate frequently with artists from the little house studios, our less-than-ten-steps-from-our-side-porch neighbors. We do select custom work as well.

We found our press via handwritten sign on a fellow vendor's booth at the holiday Bazaar Bizarre about seven years ago.We've been figuring it out as we go along ever since.

Drop us a line if you're ever in the area and we'll steer you toward the best vegetarian restaurants and some idyllic places to swim.

    I was working as a photographer when I first got hooked on printmaking.I started printing textiles then before long I was on to letterpress. I run a foot treadle operated 10x15 Chandler & Price platen press which is steadily taking over my darkroom.

    My house burned down. I moved into a place with a press in the basement. Next thing I know, I am driving to Brookline on my day off to fetch card stock.
