Sycamore Street Press
Sycamore Street Press is dedicated to combining fresh designs, sustainable methods, and the vintage charm of letterpress printing.
In the fall of 2007, Kirk and Eva Jorgensen moved into a charming little place on the brick-paved road called Sycamore Street in Columbus, Ohio. A week later, a 1000 lb. Vandercook #3 letterpress took up residence in their dining room, and Eva began using it to print her quirky little drawings.
Since then, Sycamore Street Press has grown into the
full-time family business for the Jorgensen duo. We no
longer print in our dining room, and have relocated from the Midwest to the Mountain West. But we still print everything with care on our beloved hand-cranked letterpress.
We collaborate regularly with a few of our good friends (the very talented Stephanie Ford, Kristin Mills, and Amy Shaffer), with whom we have created a collection of heirloom-quality letterpress greeting cards, business cards, invitations, posters, and other paper goods for you to enjoy. In addition, we collaborate with a different artist each month to create
The Sycamore Club limited edition prints.
Sycamore Street Press products are carried by over 50 boutiques and have been featured on Good Morning America, Daily Candy, Design*Sponge, Brooklyn Bride, Design Mom, Apartment Therapyís OhDeeDoh, Itís Nice That, Time Out Chicago, the Real Simple and Sunset magazine blogs, and more.
Letterpress is a centuries-old printing process. It involves an inked and raised form being pressed into the paper, creating an impression that you can see and feel. At Sycamore Street Press, we hand crank our goods one sheet of paper and one color at a time through our vintage Vandercook #3 letterpress. We pay close attention to detail, but the hand crafted nature of the process does lead to some variation in color and impression. These are an inherent part of the process, and add to its bespoke charm.homepage
