Description

About The Letterpress Workshop

Here, in our studio, we design and print all kinds of wonderful goods and we would like to invite you to experience this with us. We will tell you the basics of the letterpress printing technique; we will go over each of the steps involved in the process, set up the parts of the press, and talk about its uniqueness and the artistic opportunities it offers.

You will have your own creative moment. You will design your own original postcards with the patterns, clichés and movable types-letters which you will choose from the ones available for the workshop. All postcards are made with this technique, in a truly tactile experience. 

Letterpress printing was and still is a craft passed on from printer to apprentice. Whether you want to satisfy your letterpress curiosity or to explore a new environment for your designs, we will make sure that this experience adds a new layer to your life and hopefully open up new dimensions for you to discover.

About the hosts

We are two experienced and recognized graphic designers.

After working together in advertising for several years we decided it was time to establish our own design studio where we offer graphic design services specializing in the letterpress printing technique, one of the oldest forms of printing.

We are proud of being selected as one of the 10 best letterpress studios from around the world by Print, the longest-running stateside graphic design publication from the USA.
