About

Ready. Set. Go.

Vandalia Street Press is a letterpress print shop in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Printing a line of greeting cards that are inspired by nature, simple ideas and subtle humor.

With a background in design and marketing, and a BFA in Painting and Photography, it was sort of a side step for me to think about printmaking. Not that I’m a printmaker - I’m an artist really, with many curiosities. But let’s face it, who can deny a beautiful old letterpress in need of a new home? Not me that is for sure.

And that is how it all started.

It was in 2008 that I acquired the first press. And frankly, it really frightened me. Will I lose a finger? All my fingers!!?? What did it mean for my artwork and how could I do something meaningful with my new 800 pound friend. I began designing cards while learning the ins and outs of the press.

Today I have two presses and a little print shop tucked inside a beautiful book
bindery. Vandalia Street Press has become a dream come true for me. A business that allows me creative freedom in both the card line and in a new series of art prints. I also do custom printing for design studios and clients. I’m able to balance art and business in a way that I never thought would be possible.

I hope my card designs and illustrations will bring a bit of joy to those who receive them. Perhaps a giggle or two, or to know that someone is thinking of you can make all the difference in someone’s day.

    I have a BFA in Painting and Photography. Though lately I'm totally obsessed with printmaking. My work is inspired by simple shapes, subtle humor, and sometimes a little bit of Rock and Roll.

​Vandalia Street Press started on Vandalia Street in Saint Paul. The first press was a Chandler & Price. It was all very exciting and new.

I have a BFA in painting and photography and had never really thought about printmaking. I've always made weird little postcards and ditties that I would mail to people. So naturally, a line of greeting cards seemed like the perfect introduction.

I designed a line of greeting cards and went to it. That was five years ago and boy have I learned a lot.

Vandalia Street Press is now a two press show. The C&P and one Heidelberg Windmill. I print artwork, greeting cards, kitchen art, and some custom work - I even taught myself a wee bit of screen printing. I use polymer plates, metal dies and linoleum blocks. I mix my inks by hand. I love it!

My designs are inspired by my love of simple shapes, subtle humour, landscape, and a little bit of rock and roll.
