About us

Guttersnipe Press, Funny Letterpress Greeting Cards, Screen Printed Apparel and More!

Our Story:

Guttersnipe Press is the maniacal brainchild of a young(ish) curmudgeon named Steve Lusher. After moving from Appalachia to the NC coast in 2010, Steve combined his love for design and typography with the arts of letterpress and screen printing, and soon began spewing forth the contents of his unbalanced mind on an unsuspecting world. In 2012 Steve founded Guttersnipe Press to produce his original line of letterpress greeting cards, which are now found in stores across the country and abroad.

Enter Jess Gard, who came along just in time to add a softer side to the madness and keep this Steve guy well in hand. Since joining Guttersnipe Press in 2018, she has quickly become a skilled and talented letterpress printer. Jess came from a long background in retail management, and is a professional magical unicorn of organization, customer service, and Steve-management. Together these two have set out to bring the ha-ha’s to the world and spread Guttersnipe Press far and wide!

Our Products:

Guttersnipe Press designs, illustrates, and hand prints our line of irreverent, snarkalicious letterpress greeting cards in our Wilmington, NC studio. Our cards can be found in fine-ass independent retailers across the USA, and in Canada, Australia, and the UK. Since 2014 we have produced our local and national apparel lines, featuring vintage-inspired original designs screen printed using water-based inks onto absurdly soft T-shirts and canvas tote-bags, as well as magnets, stickers, can coolers and more! 

Check out our cards and tees through the Shop link above! Info about how to become a retailer can be found on our Wholesale page!
