We are artists and poets who use letterpress printing in our own work. We collaborate with you, and bring our design and artistic skills and tools to your project. Our staff includes founder Kim Vanderheiden, principal members Bill Denham, Tamara Gronet, Bettina Pauly and Jenny Seiler, as well a host of apprentices.

The painted tongue is a colorful Chilean flower of the nightshade family. This namesake reflects the marriage between image and written word that is characteristic of letterpress work.
