We nearly broke our backs lugging our, new-to-us, Sigwalt No. 5 press into our home studio.
We completed our first project, a wedding invitation suite for Local’s very own Lane and Bryan. We realized we had a lot to learn.
We introduced our first group of print goods. This initial run of art prints and greeting cards showcased or preference for strong design and bold messaging.
We launched our business to the public!
We bought our second press! Dustin and Alex drove the Chandler & Price 10x15 all the way from Kansas City. Suddenly a lot more was possible.
We are working to develop unique series of prints, featuring bold design and messages calling for an appreciation of the analog world. We hope our subversive art pushes the boundaries of what a letterpress studio can be.

The Local Crew
Bryan has the fastest mouse finger this side of the Mississippi. Turn your back on him for a minute and he’ll have a new design ready to hit the press. Seriously, he’s wicked fast.
Dustin keeps both the press and the sales funnel greased. Combining a passion for design and business he takes care of the nitty gritty. He can pull some sheets too.
Meet the real stars of the show. These workhorses have been at it for 100 years.
Chandler & Price 10x15
The newest addition to the shop, our Chandler and Price 10x15 is an icon of the trade. The larger platen allows us to do anything from business cards to small posters.
Sigwalt Ideal Press No. 5
This table top press was the gateway to our letterpress addiction. Small enough to keep on a tool cart in the living room, our Sigwalt allowed us to start experimenting and learn the basic of the printing process. We still keep her around.
I had high expectations when I ordered these cards. They far exceeded my expectations!! They are high quality and the paper is very nice. The cards were packed with care and were delivered in mint condition.
Great communication and quick shipping. Thank you!

That is exactly what inspired our Vintage Ad Series. We're Let these prints, inspired by the ads of yesteryear, motive you to eat your veggies, get outside, and read good books.Read more
