Washboard Press

Washboard Press is a small one-person letterpress print studio specializing in hand-composition with wood and metal type.

I enjoy working within the limitations of my collection of type and ornaments from different times and places and bringing them together in surprising ways to make beautiful prints that speak to people now.

This intensely, hands-on process, gives a tactile quality to the end product that can’t be matched by digital processes. Everything in my shop was hand printed by me, using both modern and vintage wood and metal type, on presses from the early 20th century.

The shop features a range of original, limited run cards, gift tags, and art prints inspired by the natural world and vintage type design.
