Who We Are
Pike Street Press is Seattle’s trusted commercial craft letterpress printing company. We print locally and with customers worldwide, with a wide range of design & advertising firms, freelance graphic designers, individuals, and corporations.
FAMILIAR FACES WE’VE WORKED WITH
We started out our letterpress studio back in 2011, working off of one press with freelance designers. Since then, we’ve worked on over 1100 custom projects as well as our own line of handcrafted letterpess house cards, notebooks, prints, and other paper goods.
Our work has been featured over the years on many well-known magazines, news sites, award shows design blogs, and inspiration websites. With the adoption of three more Heidelberg windmill presses, our production has since grown exponentially.

“Since 2011, Sean and his team at Pike Street Press have taken on the digital world by going old school.”- King 5 News
Having the best tools for the job is a must for high-end letterpress printing. After all, we are talking about working with vintage machines from 1950-1960’s era. Nobody is making new letterpress equipment nowdays, but our machines represent the height of letterpress printing technology. Maintaining these presses and using them with modern letterpress techniques keeps our work looking crisp and vibrant.
