We are a small letterpress shop in the mountains of Santa Fe, New Mexico specializing in custom print jobs for and collaborations with artists looking to print their work with letterpress. We run hand-fed, manual presses dating back to the late 1800's. We set lead + wood type and also incorporate contemporary designs through the use of photopolymer plates. Our presses are gorgeous, greasy machines that operate at the speed of the 1800’s—and we like it that way.
