Our Story

Slackline Press is a small letterpress studio on the CT shoreline. We create custom stationery with the help of an 1896 Golding platen press named Brumhilda, a 1913 Golding Pearl named Hugo and a 1920's Sigwalt Nonpareil tabletop press named Hilde.

We start with hand drawn sketches and transfer them to digital illustration. Designs are then made into photo polymer plates and printed on 100% cotton paper.

From P.R. to Florida and currently the CT shoreline, I am a digital and print designer funneling everything that I love and do into the art of Letterpress. By day, I work as a Digital Art Director for the LEGO Group.

I’ve worked for Ad agencies, small and large retail companies and once drove a forklift named Chewy. In the tiny town of Cortona, Italy I learned how to bind books the traditional way while studying book arts, paper-making, photography and oil painting.
