Guttersnipe Press offers custom fine letterpress printing and high-end water-based screen printing services for select customers and brands. Contact Us for info!
We're happy to take on custom requests, subject to client needs, project appropriateness (As in, does it need to be letterpress printed?), timeline and schedule availability. We offer in-house design services on layout, logos, and identity packages and we work with a number of talented freelance designers and commercial printers to achieve our clients goals. Our specialties are in vintage design, premium business cards for Creatives, and bespoke wedding invitation suites.
We also offer premium screen printing, using water-based inks and incredibly soft cotton/poly blended and tri-blend t-shirts. Our printing style is referred to as "soft hand" meaning the print leaves very little to feel on the surface and becomes nearly a part of the garment after two to three washes. We specialize in ultra-premium water based printing at low prices, below what many others charge for basic plastic ink.
Guttersnipe Press is the only professional letterpress printer in Wilmington, NC and the Southeastern region of North Carolina. We produce all of our work by hand, using an antique 1927 Chandler & Price letterpress printing press. We letterpress print primarily on stock manufactured by French Paper Company of Niles, MI, one of the last family-owned paper mills in the United States. We also use Crane's Cotton Lettra, specifically designed for letterpress impression, for business card and wedding suite work.
