Located in southern Maine, Sarah Cassani is focused on unique printing processes and creating original design solutions with a clean and sophisticated aesthetic. Whether creating a stationery collection, or designing materials for a special event, Sarah enjoys making every customer’s project as personal as possible by utilizing original artwork, custom ink color options, and font choices.
Why choose letterpress?
In a world dominated by flat, digital printing, letterpress printing possesses a unique tactile quality, with an impression that can be felt on paper. This old-fashioned method of printing is an art form in itself. Sarah designs the majority of her work with antique metal type, then hand mixes all inks to the perfect color. The designs are then pressed onto thick cotton paper with an antique printing press. This process cannot be duplicated by modern technology. Letterpress is a very unique method of printing dating back to the 15th century, with a long history of beautiful results.
Sarah uses both antique equipment and modern technology to carry on the art of letterpress printing. She prints larger works on an antique Golding Pearl press which dates back to 1912. Smaller works like stationery and gift tags are printed on a smaller tabletop press. Sarah utilizes a vast collection of metal type and ornaments for most stationery and on-demand projects. For more involved works, she has custom plates made. Either way, she can print most any design or project that you can dream up.
