Letterpress Specialists…  

We’ve been doing letterpress since 1924 so we have a little more experience than most in this area.  Whether you’re a designer that desires that “retro” look for a client or a Bride-to-be that’s looking for a unique save-the-date card, we can help. No templates here, it’s uniquely you! Send us your digital files and we’ll take it from there.

Coasters, Invitations, Calling Cards, and Informals are just a few of the items we letterpress on a daily basis. Our extensive letterpress department allows us to do some “extras” that are not readily available such as Numbering, Die-cutting and Channel Scoring.

For the technical minded, we have a 8″ x 12″ C&P Platen press, two 13 x 19 Kluges, two Miehle Verticals and a 20″ x 26″ Miller Simplex Cylinder Press in our letterpress arsenal. We also have a limited number of fonts we can cast in Hot Metal with our Ludlow typecaster. Of course, your, Illustrator, InDesign or PDF files are always welcome as we can make letterpress dies from your creations.
