Jesus is alive! So is print!

"Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain." - 1 Corinthians 15:58

Stubborn Press & Company began in 2011 on a whim of sorts: browsing Ebay late one night before bed, Tiffany came across an old Chandler & Price 10x15 letterpress machine that was going to be sold for scrap by the end of the week in a small town in western Virginia. Renting a truck, grabbing some friends (including her rather caught off-guard but totally willing husband), their toddler son, and some steel pipes, everyone drove 4.5 hours to rescue the press.

It was a crazy adventure that came to what seemed to be an untimely end in 2012 when Tiffany and her husband moved to Charlottesville, Virginia and the letterpress fell off the truck into the garage when a chain broke during the last day of the move.

Instead of giving up, after all the tears were shed and the sweet old press was sent to be repaired by a restoration company (and to find a better-equipped letterpress shop to call a forever home), Tiffany and Justin bought an adorable Chandler & Price Pilot tabletop letterpress from a friend and picked right up where they left off.



Four years later and Stubborn Press & Company has faced many challenges as a family of six, but together with prayer, resourcefulness, and the generosity of friends and family and fans like you, we've continued to craft encouraging letterpress goodies!

    I'm a visual designer, a wife, a mama to four, and a follower of Jesus. I've been creating my whole life, but fell in love with letterpress and printmaking in college, but I didn't pick up my first press until a decade later. The rest is history!
