This team of experienced printers will also be available for hire, offering limited-edition custom letterpress design and printing for events, business ephemera, and artistic ventures.
Hands On Press, at Striped Light, is a space where creative collaborations can take place and unique editions get released. A letterpress print shop where projects can be realized by the public at large. It’s a learning center where classes lead to press rental.
