This past weekend, I attended the studio opening of Typecase Industries. My friend, Alessandra, is the co-founder of the studio along with her friends, Emily and Stephanie. Their studio specializes in design and letterpress.
Most designers I know, if not all, have a fascination with letterpress. A beautiful and elegant way of printing – it can’t help but elevate your design. So, for me, it’s a pretty big deal to personally know someone who specializes in letterpress printing. Can’t you imagine Peety living in a letterpressed world? ME TOO!
Typecase Industries is located in Northwest D.C. blocks away from Adams Morgan. I’m proud to say, this is also the location of my first time on letterpress! Let me tell you – if you do not have the stamina or guns to crank out large print quantities, the Vandercook press will fix that for you. Alessandra was kind enough to show me the ropes.Their style of printing and humor is very apparent from the artwork adorning their studio walls and in the goodies they had for sale. Check out their Etsy shop and be a proud owner of a TCI piece. I left the studio opening feeling incredibly inspired, excited and happy for these badass ladies. Opening a studio to call your own is a great achievement. Here’s to a happy and super successful future for Typecase Industries!
