Letterpress Studio



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.

Independent Studio Rental

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

For independent rental, studio users must take a certification orientation with Wolverine Farm’s Letterpress Printer or have adequate experience and references.


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.

For any level of letterpress printmakers, volunteer on Thursday afternoons for at least 2 hours between 1 – 7pm. Volunteers shadow and assist the letterpress printer with a variety of tasks from typesetting and printing to cleaning and organizing. After 12 hours of accumulated volunteer time, a 50% discount on Studio Rental and Workshops will apply. This discount expires after 4 weeks of volunteer inactivity.
