Handmade in Los Angeles, California, U.S.A.
SweetWater Letterpress is a Los Angeles based artisan printing press specializing in hand crafted invitations, business cards, social stationery, greeting cards and limited edition prints. We blend our modern design with the meticulous craftsmanship of letterpress printing to create bold, one-of-a-kind pieces.
With a passion for typography, papers, inks and all things old, our work is a labor of love. We design, print, cut, and package all of our own custom work on our collection of antique letterpresses. Carefully crafting each sheet by hand, one at a time, we take great pride in our work and treat every project as our definitive effort.
Our presses are set up in front of the windows so you can see each piece as it's being printed. Customers often come by to see their project on press or what card we're printing as it is sure to be on the shelf later that week. Each of our presses, as well as our paper cutters, typefaces and tools are antiques. They are quirky, heavy and each noticeably different than the others. We've taken great care of them to ensure they are always in wonderful working condition, creating the best possible results.
