** ** I am putting a pause on orders–I need to catch up on printing and on life! Send me an email if you want more info or if you have an urgent need for cards. 🙂
I am a letterpress artist. Letterpress is a traditional printing process that uses force to press an image or text into the paper. This creates a textured surface that can’t be reproduced with modern printing. My printing press is about 100 years old and weighs about one ton (literally!).
I make and sell greeting cards. Each card is printed individually by feeding it into the press. Each color on a card must be printed separately after changing the ink color on the press. To create the text and images, I use wood and lead type, carved linoleum blocks, and photopolymer plates.
I have been doing letterpress for about 13 years. I learned at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts on Washington Ave.
I share a studio with my sister, Rebecca Wicklund, who makes silver jewelry. Check out our studio photos and browse my letterpress cards!
