Hammerpress, a Kansas City Letterpress

It’s letterpress at it’s very best~

While visiting First Friday Gallery Night in the Kansas City’s Crossroads Art District I came upon Hammerpress and was tickled to see a company that is using a bygone printing technique to make the most beautiful stationery, posters, artwork, business cards and design work. Everything you look at feels special in the same way a homemade pie is to store bought. The designs are personal, intricate, retro inspired, and completely unique. It’s the kind of card you hold on to and for me I enjoy to think about what the lead type letters wrote out decades before.
