How times have changed when it comes to schlepping one’s wares around town. Printed specimens have always been a crucial part of a printer’s sales toolkit. In the olden days we would haul a folio stuffed with samples to prospective customers. They would then rifle through it while slopping their lunch on the work. It was a small price to pay if it landed new business.
Now of course everything is digitized, even printing portfolios. This is our first official online portfolio. For years we have displayed our work on flickr which has suited our needs well. This new portfolio page will become the main showcase for projects we’ve completed. Flickr and Instagram will be used for sociable image sharing.
Take a peep at some of our business card productions below. Other types of letterpress printed projects such as coasters, invitations and such will be added soon.
If you are like me though, and prefer your specimens with real paper fiber goodness and that fresh ink smell, give us a call or order a paper stock swatch and sample pack here. We will diligently send you the goods straight away.

Letterpress & Die-cut Coasters
Letterpress coasters have been a thing around here for a long time. Not because we are big drinkers (never during shop hours), but seeing as we introduced this handy dandy line of house coaster die shapes some time ago:
Use any of our 12 house shapes shown above and there is no fee to make the cutting-die. Of course we are often called upon for custom die shapes and can whip up your own special crazy shape for an additional fee.
The old cranky-pot has a range of coaster board weights to choose from too. Select from 24 pt. single-ply, 48 pt. double-ply and a hefty 72 pt. for super-swanky needs.
Below is a small selection of coster projects we have produced for customers. We have more examples of coasters stashed around here somewhere. Leave me look. Oh here are some and leave me see, ah, here are some more.
More attractive samples and excruciating details about coasters coming soon. You just might need a drink (and some coasters) after so much blather!
Letterpress coasters hit the spot at events and make excellent promotional vehicles. Contact us for a quote on your coaster ideas.
