Barn Owl Press

Barn Owl Press is a one-woman letterpress print shop operated on a beautiful 120-acre farm in western Minnesota. I do my own work for sale as well as custom design and printing work for customers who love old school letterpress. I prefer to carve my own designs and hand set lead type, letter by letter. I have been making paper for two years and starting my own papermaking studio at the shop as well.

like your work, nice website, good to see someone setting hand type. Why is it that there are many print shops in barns?? I know of at least 10 that are either in chicken coops or horse barns, my shop is in an old horse barn and i raise chickens, my friend down the street is in a chicken coop and he raises horses.

Nice work on your site, and beautiful illustration of the barn here :)
