We believe in the power of hand-crafted work to evoke a human element and communicate a valued attention to detail.
Prized for its timeless elegance and tactile experience, letterpress is the oldest form of reproduction printing. The method utilizes a hard raised surface (e.g., wood carving, metal type, photopolymer plate) that is inked and then pressed into paper, cardboard, or another suitable material. Letterpress is our specialty and we are in love with the process. There’s no better way to make a great impression.

Essentially cookie cutters on steroids, the dies are sharpened steel set in plywood designed to precisely cut the finished pieces into a custom shape and accent the printed artwork. Often associated with commercial marketing materials such as product packaging, coasters, and door hangs, the technique is actually well suited for almost any project. From business cards to wedding invitations, it’s a clever way to add personalized character to your project and become a cut above the rest.
Nearly any image can be laser cut or engraved into acrylic, anodized aluminum, or wood. Very effective for event signage, these materials are a great way to personalize your event. Custom cake toppers, welcome signs, aisle markers, and more can all be laser cut or engraved to your exact specifications. Laser cut wood can be further customized with paint or wood stain to truly stand out.
You can sort of think of embossing as letterpress in reverse. The most common example of an embossed product is a credit card with raised numbers and letters. While letterpress makes an impression into the material, embossing pushes the design outwards towards the reader. Embossing can add a unique touch not present on standard letterpress projects.
Gold and silver metallics are the first thing most people think of, but shimmer and shine aren’t the only things hot foil stamping is good for. Given their opaque nature, pigment foils can be an effective way to add light colored text over a dark stock which is nearly impossible with ink. Because foil stamping is done on the same machines as traditional letterpress, similar tactile results can often be achieved.
