frequently asked questions

How do I get started?


Let’s chat! Whether it is through the phone, on email, or if you are near Santa Cruz, CA, pop in for a meet at the studio. Our conversation about your project will include your vision, timeline, and costs.




What are a few options of services to choose from?


Here at the studio it is really all about making your paper visions a reality. I want to create that WOW factor for you! I can do any combination of printing style from digital to letterpress. I also understand that budgets vary so I will work with you to make it happen any which way! Letterpress goodies are printed on an early 1930’s Chandler and Price Platen Press.

  • Custom Design
  • Letterpress and Digital printing services
  • Have a design but just need a printer? I can do that too!
  • Edge painting, dip-dying, foil, die-cutting, and more!




I want to book my project! What’s next?


From our initial project conversation the fun creative process starts! You will be given a few draft ideas to choose from with up to three rounds of edits once you have picked the one you love the most! After final approvals have been made, plates and/or woodblocks can be ordered and carved. To begin turning your project into a reality, a 50% nonrefundable deposit is required to book.




How can I be involved after design approval?


I love my clients to be involved throughout the project. I will send regular updates of pictures and videos so you feel like you are right there with me.




How do I get my order?


Custom orders can be picked up here at the studio or they are shipped via Fed Ex or UPS – we like to be able to track them from the studio all the way to your doorstep! Woohoo!




What is your environmental impact?


I’m so glad you asked! Yes! As a high school biology and environmental science teacher, thinking about how my products have an impact on the environment is always in the forefront of my mind when I source my materials. I try to be as environmentally conscious as I can as well as work with small local businesses. All of my letterpress projects are printed on 100% tree free paper - it is 100% pure cotton, which is a byproduct of the textile industry.




What is the timeline for a custom project?


Custom projects from the initial chat to the final product can take anywhere between 6-8 weeks. Do you need your project in a shorter timeline? No problem. An additional rush fee may be applied* *Rush fees vary depending on how quickly the project is needed. Our standard rush fee is a 25% over our standard pricing.
