About

Welcome to Minty Fresh Letterpress!

When I heard about Etsy.com, I knew that this was a perfect opportunity for me to sell things that I created. I am a graphic designer by trade, but a crafter at heart. I love to get my 'hands dirty' in any art medium you throw my way. I am still in the baby stages of my business but it has been so much fun so far to create special things for people and everyone who I have come into contact with on Etsy has been so incredibly nice and supportive!! :)

I started selling on Etsy in 2013 and in 3 years I sold over 1,500 burlap banners for weddings, birthdays, and other events. As much as I enjoyed creating these banners for amazing customers, all of the banners were made by my hands after work each day. It started really becoming hard to balance life, my day job & Etsy.....

So after much contemplation and support from family and friends I'm proud to announce a new chapter-- Minty Fresh Letterpress! My letterpress is a 1917 C&P which weighs 1050 lbs and I named him Harold (he will be celebrating his 100 year birthday next year!! woo!). Check out my website as I will be posting blogs about letterpressing! (www.mintyfreshletterpress.com) With Minty Fresh Letterpress I will focus on designing & creating letterpressed Greeting Cards, Custom Invites, and Fill in the blank Invites/announcements...stay tuned!

What is Letterpress you ask??
I fell in love with the look of letterpress very early on when I was getting my degree in Graphic Design at AAU. Letterpress printing is so unique and I love that each print has it's own characteristics and variations. In this method, a surface with raised letters/design (I use photopolymer plates from my digital designs) is inked and stamped directly into paper to transfer the ink and impression. This impression is what gives letterpress it’s unique 3D like feel. Each plate represents a different color in the process-- so if you see a letterpress printed card with 4 different colors this means 4 different plates were used to create this piece! I will be posting videos soon of my letterpress in action and I will also go through the steps of creating with this process.

Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoy my cards and stay in touch! :)
