Meet Edna, Mr. Snogglebaum, Adelaide and the cantankerous old pressman himself.
These self-promotional designs were done in collaboration with Parliament of Owls to launch our new letterpress imprintable die-cut coaster line – The Coasters.
“Sit your glass down here sonny…”

For 130 years…
Pulp board coasters have been effectively holding highballs while simultaneously catching eyeballs with graphic brand messages. These dual purpose devices offer a unique creative medium for designers, art directors and marketers with the added benefit of proven wood protection capabilities.
Cranky Pressman offers a line of 12 standard yet interesting die shapes to help our customers design and affordably produce their own letterpress printed coaster projects.
Who better to help launch these new letterpress printables than the senior citizens of beach community living.
A huge thanks to Meg Paradise, Lauren Sheldon and Ariana Dilebero. As the kids these days say, those gals are awesome!
The Cranky Pressman promotional coasters were letterpress printed in two colors- Pantone 325 Green-Blue and Pantone 142 Orange on 60 point Pulp Board stock.
Call 330-337-3341 or email to discuss your custom letterpress coaster project.
We will be reintroducing online ordering of Custom Letterpress Coaster Printing soon. In the meantime just give us a holler to go over and quote your project.
