At The Southern Letterpress, we offer letterpress printing and design services, as well as a curated collection of paper goods, handmade in the Southeast by a creative community of contemporary artists and printers. We specialize in personalized printing with handset type on sustainable paper stock, making letterpress accessible and affordable to our local communities. We also offer an array of additional custom printing options, from hand-carved blocks to the the latest in digital-to-plate technology. Please contact us for an estimate for your project!
Paper & Pints will be taking place every Fourth Friday from 7-9 pm. Our first session, scheduled for Friday, October 25th, will feature an Introduction to Bookbinding. For $10, you can join us for the Bookbinding Demo. Or you can purchase the Demo & DIY Kit for $20 and try your hand at the craft! FREE local craft beer will be on-hand for all attendees (ages 21 and over, of course).
Please RSVP to ensure that there are enough Paper & Pints for everyone to enjoy! We’ll add your name to our list and your registration fees can be paid on-site via cash, check, credit or debit card. Please indicate in your e-mail if you plan to attend the DEMO ONLY or if you would also like to purchase a DIY KIT.

The Southern Letterpress will be at The Kentuck Festival of the Arts in Northport, Alabama on October 19 & 20. We were honored to design and print this year’s festival poster, commemorating 30 years of quilts by Hallie O Kelley, and are so excited to have a tent at the festival!
We will be demonstrating printing on this sweet platen press, circa 1890 (here photographed overlooking the Mississippi River in Mark Twain’s home town… Jessica took it on a little road trip to the Ladies of Letterpress in Iowa over the summer).
Kentuck is the premiere arts festival in the southeastern United States, featuring the best in art and folk art. Come, check it out!
Join us on Friday, September 27 from 6:00-9:00 pm as we celebrate the opening of our new studio, located at the border of Saint Petersburg and Gulfport, FL.
