The Itinerant Printer
The Itinerant Printer, Chris Fritton, visited letterpress print shops across America throughout 2015-2017, producing unique prints at each venue culled from their idiosyncratic collections of wood type, metal type, cuts, ornaments, and polymer plates.

They offer workshops, hourly studio rental, internships, book binding services, edition printing and commercial printing.
In 2014, Ryan Tempro recognized that printmaking contained the tactile component digital design lacked. So he started M.C. Pressure. Back then, it was a small press on the table in his roommate’s kitchen. Since then, the company has grown; acquiring new presses, expanding the line, and collaborating on several custom projects.
Mon Petit Paper Co.
The Tampa letterpress studio started with a few drawers of type and barely any knowledge of the letterpress world. Since then, it has acquired several more cabinets of type, two presses and a bit of experience. We mainly print off of a Chandler & Price 10X15 and a Vandercook Series 4 . These two print studios are run by husband & wife team, Phil & Sarah Holt.
The Crafty Hag
Coralette Damme is primarily known for her block printing, but also has a recognizable style of painting. Most of her hand-printed images are one of a kind singular works, as she brings a more contemporary approach to traditional methods of printmaking and is less concerned with running large repetitive editions.
