What we do
Robinson Press is a design and letterpress studio founded in 2011 by graphic designer and letterpress printer, Rachel Robinson. We’re based just outside of Boston, but we work with clients from around the globe. We create custom wedding invitations and announcements, as well as personal and business stationery. We also design and print a line of greeting cards that are sold in select shops and boutiques.
How We Do It
All of our custom designs are letterpress printed one by one, by hand, on an antique Chandler & Price platen press forged in 1909. Finishing touches such as corner rounding, edge painting, envelope lining and ribbon tying are done by hand by skilled craftspeople.
What to Expect
Custom letterpress stationery isn’t usually an everyday purchase. For that reason, we want to make the ordering and design process as accessible as possible for our clients. We’re an independent studio with a hands-on team; you’ll be working one-on-one with Robinson Press’ owner, Rachel Robinson, on whatever your project may be.

I love paper. I have loved paper for as long as I can remember. When I was six years old I took over my family’s laundry room and turned it into my office. I emptied all of the cupboards and replaced their contents with my paper sundries. From my perch atop of the dryer I rigged an ironing board as a desk, and produced cards for each and every occasion.
Fast forward 30 years—through art school, years living overseas, working in both the wedding and branding industries in New York City, plus my own wedding and a baby later — and not too much has changed. I'm no longer working in the laundry room, and the tools of my trade have certainly become more elaborate, but at it's heart, my company, Robinson Press, is a little business that makes pretty cards for life's most special occasions.
Thanks for visiting.
