SMALL BATCH. PRINTED BY HAND. HIGH QUALITY GOODS.
Two climbers, a printing press and a detached garage-turned-studio on the CT shoreline. That’s how Slackline Press began in 2013. Since then we have acquired a few more presses, a good amount of knowledge and a whole lotta love for letterpress.
Creative ideas and hand drawn sketches come to life using modern tools for digital illustration. Our designs are then transferred to photo polymer plates and printed on 100% cotton paper.
We value quality over quantity. Our products are printed the good old fashioned way - by hand, one at a time and with great attention to detail.
