Meet  Vi

Letterpress shop owner

I'm Vi (rhymes with sky!). I am the owner and designer behind Violet Press.  I fell head over heels in love with letterpress printing and haven't looked back since.  Originally a Chicago girl, I love spending any free time I can get exploring this beautiful state.

Meet Dorothy

Chandler & Price 10x15

This is our main printing press, Dorothy.  Dorothy comes from an old newspaper shop in Kansas. She is retrofit with a small motor to help her keep up with demand.  Each print is run by hand, one color at a time, one sheet at a time.

Meet Jake


I’m Jake! I joined Violet Press in 2018.  As Vi's brother, I officially make Violet Press a family business.  I manage our wholesale business.  If I'm not at the shop, I am probably fly-fishing, traveling or thinking up another clever pun. 

Meet Fluke

Chandler & Price 10x15

This is our shop cat, Fluke!  He provides comic relief, makes sure we aren't taking ourselves too seriously, and loves visitors.  You can occasionally find him in our back office, but often he prefers to work from home.
