I am a letterpress artist.  Letterpress is a traditional printing process that uses force to press an image or text into the paper.  This creates a textured surface that can’t be reproduced with modern printing.  My printing press is about 100 years old and weighs about one ton (literally!).

I make and sell greeting cards.  Each card is printed individually by feeding it into the press.  Each color on a card must be printed separately after changing the ink color on the press.  To create the text and images, I use wood and lead type, carved linoleum blocks, and photopolymer plates.

I have been doing letterpress for about 12 years.  I learned at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts on Washington Ave.

I share a studio with my sister, Rebecca Wicklund, who makes silver jewelry.  Check out our studio photos and browse my letterpress cards!
