Our studio is located in a historic building in a small Iowa town. From here, we work our design and printing magic.
In our studio, we specialize in letterpress printing. Letterpress is a relief printing process. It has a tactile quality, as each piece is hand-fed into the press and the design is imprinted onto the paper.
In addition to our custom work, we have a line of greeting cards and paper goods that we sell in the studio, online, and other select retailers. We also carry a selection stationery and gift items in our retail portion of the studio.
Currently all of our presses are human powered (no electricity!). The studio is home to a Nolan Proof Press, two platen presses (a Kelsey 6×10 and a Chandler and Price 10×15), and a Kingsley Foil Stamper, among other printing trinkets and equipment. Check out the video below of our Chandler and Price 10×15 in action in our prior location!
