At this time the Wolverine Farm Letterpress Studio is closed to the public. We are still available for custom printing and are busy making new prints and cards for sale, but unfortunately we are not able to rent press time for DIY projects in the form of assisted or independent rentals. Please reach out to our printer jes@wolverinefarm.org if you have any questions.


Wolverine Farm Letterpress creates a variety of paper goods, from greeting cards and notebooks to art prints and posters. Occasionally we collaborate with local writers and poets on limited edition books and broadsides. Stop by our location at 316 Willow Street in Fort Collins to check out our ever-growing selection of letterpress goods.


Assisted Studio Rental
As an introduction to letterpress printmaking, we offer Assisted Studio Rental. An Assisted Studio User either has a project or idea in mind, or just wants to learn the basics with a simple project and works collaboratively with Wolverine Farm staff to produce the work in our Letterpress Studio. Learn to handset antique type or learn how to prepare a digital file that can be converted into a press-ready plate. Most projects can be accomplished in 2-3 hours. The hourly rate includes ink. Paper and plates–if necessary–may be purchased separately or provided by the renter.

Independent Studio Rental
For experienced letterpress printmakers, we offer Independent Studio Rental. An Independent Studio User possesses adequate skill and knowledge for independent work. Please check out our list of available equipment and contact letterpress@wolverinefarm.org to schedule an interview and orientation. For independent rental, studio users must posses adequate experience, skill, and knowledge and either provide references or take a certification orientation with Wolverine Farm’s Letterpress Printer.

Times for Assisted or Independent Studio Rental must be reserved at least 24 hours in advance.


Invitations, announcements, business cards, broadsides, book covers and more, we can either custom design your project or help translate your ideas to the language of letterpress using antique wood and metal type, hand-carved wood or linoleum, or photo-polymer plates.

Contact letterpress@wolverinefarm.org for more information and to get started on your custom letterpress project today!
