Frequently Asked Questions

Below are answers to some of the common questions we are often asked. If you don't see what you are looking for or would like more information, fill out the contact form here and we will answer as soon as possible. 

WHEN ARE YOU OPEN? CAN I STOP BY?

Our shop is open Wednesday - Saturday from 11am - 7pm. Feel free to stop by anytime within those hours to talk about custom work. We are also available to meet on Monday and Tuesday by appointment.

WHAT CAN YOU PRINT?

We can print pretty much anything on paper - posters, greeting cards, business cards, wedding invitations, stationery, coasters, etc. The largest area we can print is 18” x 24”. We do not print fabric (t-shirts, tote bags) or stickers but we can design them for you. If we can’t do the actual production we can recommend someone local or otherwise who can.

HOW FEW OF SOMETHING CAN YOU PRINT?

The process of letterpress printing is not ideal to produce one copy of anything. Most of the work goes into the setup, therefore to get your money’s worth we set our minimum for most products at 50 copies. We will print one of something if you really want it, however the price will be the same as our minimum quantity.

HOW MANY CAN YOU PRINT?

Everything we do is by hand so quantities larger than 500 may be problematic but not impossible. Contact us if you have a large project in mind and we will see what we can do.

CAN YOU PRINT FULL COLOR?

Each color is printed one at a time. We can print as many colors as you want, but it does get expensive because of the time that goes into production. Each color must be plated, set up, printed and washed up separately. The ink is hand mixed so we can create virtually any color that you envision. However, letterpress ink is naturally transparent so the saturation and vibrancy of colors may vary.

I HAVE AN IDEA OF WHAT I WANT, BUT I’M NOT SURE. CAN YOU HELP ME DESIGN IT?

Yes! We would love to help bring your vision to life. Send us an email with as much detail as you can, or if you’d prefer you can stop by during store hours to talk through your ideas with us.

CAN YOU INCLUDE A PHOTO IN THE DESIGN?

We can not recreate a full color photo through letterpress printing but we may be able to reproduce the photo as a halftone or line drawing. You can email us the photo to see what is possible.

I HAVE A FINISHED DESIGN. CAN YOU PRINT IT FOR ME?

Yes, we will print design work that is not our own. However, we will not print material that you do not own the copyright for, is stolen, or is unoriginal to you.

WHAT IS YOUR TURNAROUND TIME?

Standard turnaround time is 2 weeks, however it can vary based on the complexity of the job and the amount of work we currently have. For large posters and wedding invitations we need at least 1 month.
