Greenwich Letterpress

Design

Sisters Amy Salvini Swanson and Beth Salvini combined their talents in graphic design and fine art with their printing pedigree to form Greenwich Letterpress. This amiable boutique offers custom printing services and has the best selection of handmade cards in the city—blending the right touches of humor, quirkiness, and design aesthetic. They stock many unique objects including vintage toys, paper straws, handmade journals, and tote bags. Everything comes together to create a quaint general store-like atmosphere.

For their own line, Amy and Beth hand-print all of their cards on antique Heidelberg Windmill presses and use environmentally friendly materials. Their cards and invitations range in theme from animal and botanical motifs to humor and pop culture references. Custom printing orders can be done by appointment with Amy, who will help customers create a special look by selecting imagery, typefaces, and inks. In addition to their own work, Greenwich Letterpress carries paper goods from stylish stationers including Dutch Door Press, Oddball Press, enormouschampion, Suddenly Its Real, La Familia Green and Screech Owl Design.
