Blue Spruce Art Press

United States
With over 30 years experience in the printing industry with positions ranging from sales, production and proprietor, I started Blue Spruce Art Press out of necessity in 2011. The creativity that letterpress offers was the perfect outlet for my creative side and allows me to indulge my inner craftsman. The mission of Blue Spruce Art Press is to provide clients with hand crafted letterpress stationery at affordable prices in an effort to promote the power of the handwritten note.

Interview with Mark from Blue Spruce Art Press
When did you start letterpress printing?: 
What do you like best about letterpress printing?: 
Coupled with the craftsmanship needed to letterpress ink onto paper, the beauty of letterpress is that each piece may show slight variations in regards to depth, color or position making each one a truly unique piece unto itself.
What inspires you?: 
My inspiration comes from many different styles from the arts & crafts movement to art deco, art nouveau and even the opening credits during a movie. Mostly anything that presents type in a new and unique way.

Each item we produce is hand pressed on either our vintage Kelsey 5x8 or our Kelsey 3x5 letterpresses onto 100% Tree Free papers.
