What inspires you?:
People who are passionate about the things they make with their hands.
Which press(es), ink & paper do you usually use?:
My studio is home to a Chandler & Price platen, an Adana Eight-Five platen and a mini Showcard proof press. Until October 2010, I also owned a 6.5 x 10 Craftsmen Machinery Co. press. I use rubber based inks. My house cardstock is 100% cotton rag. But I'll print on just about any type of paper!

My specialty is printing original small-sized letterpress goods in short runs. I offer custom design and printing for personal stationery, announcements, calling cards, promos, wedding and other social invitations. In addition to bespoke work, I design and print stationery that is often inspired by minimalistic design, typography and creative use of wood type. This work includes correspondence cards, postcards, and limited edition prints.
