Experience the Art of Letterpress



From printing your own wedding invitations to designing one of a kind business cards, we'll design a personal session to create the perfect paper goods. Be as hands-on as you'd like with our selection of antique type and ornaments, and make a lasting impression on our vintage platen press from 1920.

Private sessions range from $30-$50 per hour, depending on the project.  Email us to reserve a date.



In our workshops, you will learn the basics of typesetting and composing with vintage wood or metal type, then pull your own prints on our manual presses.  All of our sessions are one day only, and give you a step by step understanding of letterpress printing, in our Chicago studio loft.  Pricing is $20 per person.
