There was a time when written communication connected loved ones across land and sea. When a handwritten letter was more than just words on paper but a visual and tactile pleasure. Letterhead, envelopes, business and calling cards, and thank you notes, our personalized stationery reinvents those timeless cherished pieces. Your name pressed firmly into the soft cotton fibers gives a subtle sophistication to your own personal identity. Yes, you’re that special.
100 Business Cards
Starting at $110
We’re a custom shop. It’s not just invitations and business cards. We print wine labels, hang tags, posters, buck slips, bookplates, books, recipe cards and any other unique item you can dream up. When it comes to design, that’s our strongest asset. We were designers before we were printers, back when everything went to print. You dream of it, we’ll print it.

Our press operator is Jeremy Chapline. Jeremy is a designer, resident artist and the pressman for Foundry Press. He has a what some might call an obsession for the art and craft of letterpress printing. His addiction to beautiful typography and the feel of a well crafted piece of paper, all started when he was introduced to the area of design in college. After a year of working towards an Art Education degree, he decided to switch his major to graphic design and his pursuit of letterpress was born. He first greased the gears of Ink Plate Press in 2010. Not only is Jeremy an experienced letterpressman he is a seasoned graphic designer.
