Create Your Own Letterpress Poster

Set wood type and printer’s blocks by hand to design and print your own poster on the historic iron handpress at Constellation & Co. with our help! Join Sara, the company's founder, to customize and print your own traditional poster using a historic printing press dating back to 1895. For centuries, prior to automated machine printers and copiers, the printing press was the go-to for communicating via the printed word. Take part in the artisanal revival of this art form as you tour the studio and learn about a working print shop. 

Use the time-honored tradition of printing by hand to create a one-of-a-kind poster design to bring home with you. Choose from our collection of antique wood type and printer’s blocks, design a unique poster, and print it yourself on the iron handpress.

Open House Workshops

Join us for a laid back intro to letterpress. These 3 hour open house style workshops are perfect for a quick date, time to catch up with friends, or a relaxing no pressure way to learn something new! You'll tour the studio, learn about a working print shop, and get your hands inky printing a poster to take home on our historic iron handpress! We've chosen a poignant quote and typeset it with vintage wood type. You'll drop by and ink up the type, pull some prints on our 100 year old press and take home posters for yourself or gifts!
