Letterpress printing takes a persnickety eye and an inventive drive. I print the old fashioned way, using ink, iron, wood, lead and shoe leather. This is not your grandma’s fine stationer.
I am a small, one-person shop and I love working closely with clients for personalized results. Every design and every print follows a unique process of carefully selecting vintage metal and wood type to achieve a one-of-a-kind look. Fontlove Studio is a specialized letterpress print shop using 100% hand-set metal and wood type and vintage ornaments. Because of this unique process, we do not print designs from outside designers. Our studio collection includes a wide range of type and ornaments that are handset, piece by piece, to create your invitations. This style of printing differs from much modern letterpress printing – we are inspired by creating unique and striking designs within the constraints of 19th century technology. We like to borrow the credo of the venerable Hatch Show Print — “preservation through production”.
