We’re a letterpress design and print shop founded in 2003 and grounded in the steel city of Pittsburgh. If you walked through our door right now you’d catch us operating our fleet of presses, calling UPS again, packaging products, and chatting about everything from home renovation to our latest Netflix obsession. Filling wholesale orders with our gift and greeting card lines keeps us busy on the daily, but it’s not our only gig. We turn out everything from custom invitations to business cards, host events, and offer classes from time to time. Idle hands, ya know.
Want more of a backstory? Can do. Lisa Krowinski started this business while working as a graphic designer in Baltimore. After setting type for four hours in the home studio of a local printer, her fate was sealed. The shop has moved five times since the purchase of our first press, and with each move Sapling Press has become a bigger and better version of itself, all thanks to a dedicated crew, awesome clients, hustlin’ reps, mad talented collaborators, and a long list of folks who support us like it’s their job. Thanks so much for taking the time to check us out.
