Pirouette Press

Pirouette Press is a boutique letterpress & graphic design studio at the foothills of the Italian Alps. 

Why the name Pirouette Press? A prima ballerina performs her pirouettes, or in this case a platen press spins. Pirouette aims at something beautiful and well executed for every client or project. In the studio, research and footwork go into finding the finest quality materials to work with. Paper choice (artisanal European paper mills and American choice cotton), vegetable based ink and recycled and sustainable materials are preferred.

I’m a graphic designer with a flair for a creative lifestyle. My formal education began in Austin, Texas and continued when I relocated to Italy. My love for print and design moved me to specialize in the wonderfully tactile medium letterpress. I continue to grow a small but happy studio which houses a Vandercook and two platen  presses.

I regularly collaborate with other makers, organize creative events and offer workshop demonstrations with the local printing museum to promote the art of letterpress.

When I'm not in the studio you can find me playing with my baby girl, outdoors, listening to my favorite podcasts or in the kitchen. I live with my very kind and helpful husband who sometimes makes me cool stuff.
