Tell us about your business.

A graphic designer by trade, I have always loved to make things. I fell in love with letterpress years ago and haven't stopped printing since! I offer custom design and printing or I can print your already designed files. No minimum quantities, we can print as many or as little you like. Our line of Beer coasters has been featured on blogs and in Martha Stewart Living Magazine. We also have great letterpress printed cards for every occasion! About my letterpress & studio: I offer in–house printing on my blue vintage old style Chandler & Price Letterpress, it is closing in on a hundred years old and still going strong. My new recently built studio is nestled in the back of my property under an old apple tree in Boise, Idaho. Why do I love letterpress? Letterpress creates an impression in the paper creating an invitation or personal announcement that is more tactile than modern printing.

What makes your business stand out?

letterpress + design, our fresh take on an old craft.
