ABOUT US

Sesame Letterpress is a boutique design and letterpress print shop in Brooklyn, New York.  We have been working closely with clients for over a decade and pride ourselves on our professionalism and dedication to the art of fine letterpress printing.  Our goal is to create stationery items that become keepsakes.

LETTERPRESS PRINTING

Dating back to the 15th Century, letterpress printing is done by inking a plate with a raised surface of type or images and pressing this surface into a sheet of paper, creating a beautiful de-bossed impression.  All of our printed goods are produced in our Brooklyn studio with cast iron platen presses.  Each piece is hand-fed, one color at a time and one piece at a time on our Victorian machines.  This careful attention to detail results in beautifully printed stationery.

SUBMITTING YOUR OWN DESIGN

Along with printing our own designs, we often print other designers’ artwork.  For more information on submitting a file for letterpress printing, please email us the project details and we will send pricing and specs for working with us.

OUR LOCAL & ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITMENT

We are a small business committed to reducing our footprint on the environment and supporting our local community.  In effort to do so, we order our supplies from local vendors and all of our materials are made in the USA (most are made in New York State).  We print on paper that is tree free, archival, acid free, recyclable, biodegradable, and elemental chlorine free.
