Who We Are
A full-service, commercial letterpress print shop, Thomas-Printers loves the process as much as the finished product, whether it be wedding invitations, business cards, greeting cards, or anything else that needs the touch of letterpress. Or die-cutting, or edge painting, or the perfect Pantone. We’re a woman-owned, community-minded business that’s obsessed with ink on paper.
We work with designers, individuals, collaborators, and fellow printers on projects that demand a quick turnaround and a close attention to detail. We’re happy to consult with you and work on getting your project into print quickly and as economically as possible.
Kseniya Thomas opened Thomas-Printers in 2005. She was trained as an intern at the print shop of the Gutenberg Museum in Mainz, Germany. She is the co-founder of Ladies of Letterpress, a professional organization that provides a community where both brand-new and experienced printers can learn from one another, share resources and ideas, and help keep letterpress a thriving, exciting, and multifaceted art and craft.
Why We Do It
Letterpress and love are often said in the same breath. It’s easy to understand why: there are few things in life where we can be involved, from start to finish, in making a beautiful, useful product; meet committed, interesting people (read: our clients) with each new project; and use triumphantly antique tools every day as well.
What We Do
We’ll happily print from your print-ready files. If you need help with file prep, please send us a message or give us a call. Rush printing is sometimes available; contact us for scheduling inquires and current turn times.
Thomas-Printers strives to make letterpress printing as green as it can be. All of our house papers contain some amount of recycled content – most are tree-free – and all scraps, rags, and printing plates are recycled. Though all ink contains petrochemicals, we use non-toxic methods to wash up the presses.
