Paprika Press

Paprika Press is the labor of love of Brittany Fox. Because she has always loved hand written notes and snail mail invitations, Brittany decided she had to own a printing press machine to make her own. She ventured out in search for a small printing press and came back with a 1926 Chandler & Price printing press that she calls “Prudence”. Brittany taught herself how to use the press with the help of an expert and extensive research and Paprika Press was born. Brittany is a typeface fanatic and believes great designs and letterpress products start with the simplicity of fonts. She resides in sunny San Diego, CA with her boyfriend and cat Zoey.
