Printerette Press

Printerette Press is a boutique design and letterpress studio located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. We love the antique art of letterpress printing for its lovely, textural qualities and for the fact that each piece is hand-fed one-at-a-time with care on our antique presses.

In addition to our passion for letterpress printing, we love beautiful design – especially beautiful design that is fun, quirky, and makes one’s heart skip a beat. We love beautiful typography and hand lettering and we love the inspiration of vintage illustration and novel color combinations.

Printerette Press was created in 2009 by Catherine Polacek. Trained and working as a clothing designer, Catherine’s love for design shifted from 3D to 2D. From a small town in Iowa, she purchased a hundred-year-old Chandler & Price platen press and Printerette was born.

Today, fine craftsmanship and quirky, personalized design is what makes our world go ’round. Creating perfect paper goods for our clients puts a skip in our step and is why we’re delighted to share our work with you.
