Letterpress + Design

The Permanent Collection – Des Moines, Iowa

It would be easy to drive by Sarah and her husband Andy’s beautiful home without realizing the sacrifices they have made to turn their basement and garage into a letterpress production facility. Their home is beautiful and besides the abundance of framed type posters, you probably wouldn’t even be suspicious that it sits above a letterpress bunker. Sarah is a true artist who loves to be involved in every step of the process and work with her hands. Sarah has been collecting type and printing for the last 12 years. Besides being a designer/printer/operator, Sarah is a wife, mother of two and professor at Drake University and I am sure that isn’t even the beginning of it. #makedesmoines
