Sesame Letterpress & Design
55 Washington Street #608
Sesame Letterpress is a letterpress studio in Brooklyn, New York operated by the wedded team of Breck Hostetter and Matt Heindl. We specialize in custom printing projects from invitations to personal stationery to limited edition artists’ publications. Dating back to the 15th Century, letterpress printing is done by inking a plate with a raised surface of type or images and pressing this inked surface into a sheet of paper, creating a beautiful de-bossed impression. All our printed goods are produced in our Brooklyn studio with cast iron platen presses. Each piece is hand-fed, one color at a time and one piece at a time on our Victorian machines. We are committed to reducing our footprint on the environment and use paper made from 100% recovered cotton fibers which require fewer chemicals and produce far less waste than papers made from trees.
