About

Les Bois is all About the Trees

Hello! I’m Jennifer Manning-Gilbreath, a professionally trained designer and printer, passionate about hand process design and its beauty. I founded Les Bois Letterpress in 2011 to bring together the quality craftsmanship of vintage letterpress printing techniques and twenty-first century design, all for the purpose of making exceptional stationery that leaves an impression--literally!

My letterpress designs, held in the hand, cultivate meaningful connection. They embody the kind of expression that enriches life via unique design and exquisite printing. That’s why I started Les Bois Letterpress – to leave a lasting impression. I believe in being a steward of our environment and I run a green business. After all, “les bois” means “the trees” for which I have a profound reverence.

Personal service, unique design & exquisite printing, that’s my specialty.

Last updated on August 1, 2013
Les Bois Letterpress is an eco-friendly design and print shop operating out of Boise, Idaho, U.S.A. My nineteenth century Chandler and Price presses make a twenty-first century impression of high quality craftsmanship that is both tactile and distinctive; part of the reason I fell in love with this medium! You can feel the difference of letterpress printed items because this printing method leaves a crisp embossed edge around every letter and shape. In addition, each piece of 100% cotton paper is hand-fed and printed with hand-mixed, soy content inks; all in an effort to responsibly care for our environment while at the same time making exquisite prints.
