About

right brain + left brain = all heart

Located in a boutique studio right in the heart of Historic Jim Thorpe, PA, we spend our days smashing iron into cotton on vintage Chandler & Price platen presses and two beautiful, old Heidelberg Windmills creating all sorts of letterpressed ephemera including greeting cards, gift tags, invitations and business stationery.

The creative brain behind the designs belongs to Amy, who when not sketching and drawing the daily flurry of ideas, also keeps the Chandler + Price Craftsman spinning.

The heart and hum of the studio is under the watchful eye and ink-stained hands of Mitch where he keeps the Heidelberg Windmills busy with the day-to-day print projects and larger runs.

//////////////////////

Somersault is not an industrial print shop. We are not fast, or competitive. Our hands are the ones that craft the project. Our minds are dreaming up the next idea or working through the next issue on press. And our hearts are in every printed piece.
