true north letterpress
True North Letterpress is a design and letterpress studio now open near the Methow Valley Farmers Market location in Twisp.
The studio features a shop that sells hand printed gift cards and paper goods, local art, and showcases historic printing equipment that’s used to create many of the things available for sale. Custom letterpress printing services are also available for wedding invitations and other specialty projects.
Since opening True North in late 2018, Robin has focused on developing designs that are influenced by her strong sense of color and the studio’s collection of vintage metal type. “Right now I’m designing by using traditional typesetting alongside colorful elements created with more modern printing techniques. I want to cultivate an appreciation for the craft of letterpress but I’m definitely not a traditionalist.”
Look for True North Letterpress goods at Glover Street Market, the Mazama Store and at Bear Foods Natural Market in Chelan. Or visit True North’s website. Stop into the new location and see the printing press in action next time you’re visiting the Methow Valley Farmers Market.
