Announcement   Our BEER coasters were featured in Martha Stewart Living Magazine!

A graphic designer by trade, I have always loved to make things. I fell in love with letterpress years ago and haven't stopped printing since! I offer custom design and printing or I can print your already designed files. No minimum quantities, we can print as many or as little you like.

About my letterpress & studio: I offer in–house printing on my blue vintage old style Chandler & Price Letterpress, it is closing in on a hundred years old and still going strong. My studio is nestled in the back of my property under an old apple tree in Boise, Idaho.

Why do I love letterpress? Letterpress creates an impression in the paper creating an invitation or personal announcement that is more tactile than modern printing.

About

Letterpress Love.

I fell in love with letterpress long ago. I got my first press in 2008. I dreamed of my own space to create in, and in 2011 I built that studio space and upgraded to a bigger press. Since then we have expanded to offering more stationery and goods.

    I am a graphic designer & letterpress printer. I sprung at a chance to leave the corporate design world and I haven't looked back! I love to make things that are both beautiful and functional.

    I’m inspired by art, music, and film. Studying Illustration abroad at the Glasgow School of Art greatly influenced my work. I'm currently seeking a second degree at Boise State.

Subtle variations in color, impression ect are not defects, but a part of what makes letterpress beautiful. Colors may vary from monitor to monitor. We do our best to represent actual color in our photographs of our work, but can not guarantee it. Please order samples of our letterpress to touch and feel the actual letterpress work.

Color matching: We do our best to match colors for you, however ink on a letterpress is transparent so may appear lighter. Cotton paper also tends to pick sometimes and can make some colors look lighter. Also subtle variations in color among the pieces may occur. If exact color is very important please discuss it with us and send a physical sample of what we are aiming for so we can get as close as we can! We can match PMS colors as well. Some colors are harder to mix than others, we get really close, as close as we can! If an exact match is required please do send us a physical sample of the color and discuss the options for matching that color. Colors on your monitor are not neccesarilly accurate, if sending us an image from the web to match keep in mind it may not look the same on our monitor as on yours. We can not be responsible for matching colors from the web, though we are happy to do our best!

Plates: You can buy your customized plates as a souvenir if you like, convo us! The cost covers cleaning them up and shipping them.

About cotton paper: cotton paper is beautiful but sometimes does not cut as cleanly as other paper, it can have little pieces attached to the cut edges (most of which rub right off) and due to the softness of it it can sometimes leave little imperfections when corner rounding or cutting. These are not defects they are just what happens with a very soft all cotton stock! Cotton paper also tends to pick sometimes and can make some colors look lighter.
