Rebelling against the grind of designing behind a computer, Ben Levitz bought his first printing press late in 1999. This early basement studio stationed a Chandler & Price platen press between the boiler and the clothes dryer and just a step away from the cat box. Fast-forward twenty-one years— that basement hobby is now a truly unique commercial print shop with a battery of presses and a crew of talented people. That first press sits expectantly in the entryway to our shop in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
Our studio works hard to make beautifully produced objects that are inspirations to those who interact with them. In our design services, we are committed to making distinctive work that engages the senses. In our printing, we are committed to making letterpress one of the most premium and relevant production methods for contemporary design. We love making things.
