The Shop

Since opening in 2005, Quality Letterpress has become the place for letterpress in San Diego. Whether you’re a designer, bride, wedding planner or business owner we’re here to help you get the printed piece you want. Working with letterpress print, foil or embossing and die cutting, our 30 plus years of experience will guide you through the process and cater to your needs. We view your job as the most important job in our shop which means we make sure it’s done the right way. The entire processs, from the planning and designing to the ordering of paper and materials to the actual printing and trimming is handled in-house with care and attention to detail that keeps the quality at the highest level.


We run small and large sized platen presses ranging from 50 to 100 years old which use very low quantities of chemical and have a minimal carbon footprint. 2 of our 5 presses are human powered and we’re proud to be able to offer an environmentally conscientious print option. The presses and type collection we use are in themselves works of art and we enjoy their timeless yieldings and embrace the slight imperfections common with the machines and the process of this vintage. We take great pride in our craft and strive to make sure your job is nothing short of amazing.
