Print & Be Merry

I received a Studio Art degree from the University of Wisconsin – Madison in 1997 but had not done much printmaking. In 2007, I discovered and began learning about letterpress printing. My online Etsy shop, Print & Be Merry LLC (formerly Happy Deliveries), was opened in 2009.

Most of my work is done using my Showcard Press or C&P Pilot Press, although I also own a Vandercook, Kelsey, Baltimorian and several Linoscribes. I love simple, bold designs created using mostly wood type or metal type. I have been experimenting lately with photopolymer plates.

The majority of my work that you will find in my shop is motivational posters or greeting cards. I have done a few custom wedding invitations and hope to do more in the future.
