About

Keeping Letterpress Alive

Michelle Johnson, owner and creator of Runaway Press, letterpress printed for the first time in college and fell in love with the history, process and experimental nature of this truly amazing craft. Her aim is to educate others about the traditional process of letterpress and keep that process alive, as well as create unique letterpress pieces for lovers of handmade, hand-printed art and ephemera. She prints on an antique proofing press from the 1940's. She also uses antique lead and wood type as well as vintage blocks to create her work. Please visit Runaway Press to view her hand-letterpress pieces and see what she's been up to! Thank you, friends!

Returns and exchange details
If your order does not arrive within 15 days of purchase, please contact Runaway Press to negotiate a refund or replacement solution. All items are refundable IF DAMAGED OR LOST. Insurance covers damage or loss of items sent through the USPS and you will be refunded and required to send any damaged goods back. Filing a claim for lost or damaged goods through the USPS is a long process, thus the refund process for lost or damaged items may take 7-60 days.
Payment
Etsy will automatically apply Colorado sales tax (6.25%) to all orders that ship to a region of Colorado. If your order is not placed from or being sent to Colorado then no tax charges will be applied to the order. The tax rate is applied to all orders paid via any payment method. If you use a coupon code to apply a discount to your order during checkout, then the sales tax will be calculated from the new discounted price.
Shipping
Runaway Press ships within 1-3 business days after you place your order.

Shipping in the US:
Cards are typically sent via standard mail to keep shipping costs low for you, the consumer. If you would like them sent through First Class or Priority, please contact me through Etsy BEFORE you make your purchase for pricing. Smaller art prints are shipped in a flat, rigid mailer and sent USPS First Class Mail (unless you request otherwise by sending me a message). Any item 7x16 or larger will be shipped in a cardboard shipping tube and sent First Class which that comes with insurance and tracking (unless you request otherwise by sending me a message). If you would like an upgrade on shipping, YOU MUST contact me through Etsy BEFORE making your purchase. Any requests for shipping changes after your purchase will be considered, but not guaranteed.

If you do not provide the correct name or address when ordering and your items get sent to an incorrect address or returned to Runaway Press, it is the buyers responsibility to pay for the items to be reshipped to the correct address.
