Igloo is a small but mighty letterpress and bookbinding studio, retail shop and commercial printer in central Ohio.
Their roots are steeped in history by using their extensive collection of wood and metal type and beautiful vintage image cuts. As a modern letterpress printer Igloo Letterpress thrive on pushing the envelope and experimenting with the best of digital and analog techniques. To visit their studio is to receive an education in not only the 600-year history of printing, but to get a glimpse of where it is going and why it is an always changing, vibrant, and exciting craft.
The staff at Igloo share a a few of their favorite Outlaws!
Heartell Press letterpress greeting cards are printed with hand-carved woodblocks on 100% post-consumer recycled paper. Artist and printmaker Rachel Kroh, who recently relocated from Brooklyn, New York to Fort Wayne, Indiana, began making cards in 2012 when she had trouble finding the kind of warm, sincere sympathy cards she wanted to send to family and friends who were experiencing hard times. Heartell Press launched online in 2014 and the collection now includes cards for all kinds of occasions, as well as art prints and boxed note cards–perfect gifts for the holidays!
Igloo joins on December 10th with the wide assortment of letterpress items. Find your favorite Outlaws at www.craftinoutlaws.com.
