It's not rocket science. All a person really needs to print is paper, ink, and pressure. Have a pinch of good luck handy and you've got yourself a pretty good situation. Our setup is no different and not much special. At heart, we're just your friendly neighborhood letterpress print shop.
All things paper pass between our hands. And some pixels, too. What we’re really after are images and the good words that follow them. So far, that’s given us the good fortune to work with all sorts of folk like poets, writers, musicians, publishers, and business people far and wide.

David Brewer founded the Press in 2006. Scarlett McAllister joined sometime later. It’s a small operation. And we don’t mind saying we like it that way.
Works primarily in handset lead type, book binding, and linoleum block-cuts. Studied at University of New Brunswick and St. Thomas University. David has taught celtic design courses at UNB.
Works primarily in digital design, offset printing, metallic foiling, and letterpress. Studied at Ryerson University and OCAD University. Scarlett has taught courses in design and publishing at NBCC, NBCCD, and UNB.
Mostly gets in the way while we work, Walt’s an old sook who can’t get enough attention. He came to us by way of David’s daughter, who found him as a stray.
Hardly seen around the shop, Lucy’s a quite cat and the lucky girl who gets to put up with Walt day and night. She came to us by way of Karma Cats, a cat-rescue outfit in the province.
Things we’ve done have been sold, shown, and shared around most four corners of Canada. It may not mean much, but it sure beats having paper setting around collecting dust.
Here’s what it comes down to. If you’re looking to get something done creative wise, go ahead and get in touch. If we can’t help you ourselves, we’ll see that at least we can point you in the right direction.
