About

Intima Press Letterpress Designs Studio is a vintage letterpress studio located in New York City committed to the high craft of letterpress printing. Our designs are a union of art historical traditions and modern sensibilities. We love to keep the tradition of hand setting metal and wood type alive in trendy art posters, announcements and business cards!

However, most of our custom wedding invitation printing is created from digital design files and translated into a plate.  We letterpress print each design by hand, one at a time, with the greatest care and attention to detail. We  create custom-designed invitations and announcements for your special events that reflect your style!  We work with businesses, individuals, artists, galleries, and designers.  Our printing is meticulous and we are very easy to work with, putting You first!  Please visit http://www.LetterpressDesigns.com
