Starshaped Press

Welcome to Starshaped Press!

Since 1999 we’ve stayed true to the original craft of letterpress, disregarding the naysayers that claim antique metal and wood type is too limiting for quality design. As an old fashioned shop with solid presswork and hard working midwestern gumption, we buck popular trends in modern, ‘couture’ printing. We are proudly one of the very few shops in the country printing entirely like it’s 1929. No computers, no plastic, no way. We don’t just photograph great type, we use it!
