We believe in the power of the written word. And in this increasingly digitized world of instant social media, text messages and email, we believe even more in the power of opening the mailbox and finding an "old fashioned" handwritten letter. Our letterpress cards are a delight for the senses and a luxurious reminder of a simpler time when items were produced by hand with great care.

Our 100% cotton paper is made specifically for letterpress printing. Made from cotton linters left over from the textile industry, the paper is tree free, acid free and elemental chlorine free, and it is recyclable and biodegradable.


 Our soy-based inks are mixed by hand. We have a standard color palette with which we work, or we can custom mix ink to match any color in the pantone matching system.

Our three antique Chandler & Price printing presses were built in America between 1888 and 1917. We currently have a C&P Old Style 8x12 from 1888 (with its original gold pinstriping still intact), a C&P New Style 10x15, and a C&P Pilot 6x10.

Letterpress birth announcements are an elegant way to introduce the world to your family's new addition.


Whether you're announcing the birth of a son or daughter or celebrating the adoption of a child, our letterpress announcements can be personalized to reflect your tastes and personality. Monograms are a traditional favorite, but we also offer a wide range of motifs, ranging from rabbits to rocketships.
