Printshop

Our letterpress shop started in 2002 when Swayspace partners Patrick and Willy heard about a press for sale in their Williamsburg studio neighborhood. With not a lick of letterpress experience, the partners set out to restore the press and learn to operate it. Luckily, their interest in type design, prowess with all things mechanical, and a helpful hand from some local experts led to a well-functioning printshop. Today, the Swayspace printshop is comfortably situated in a 2,000 square foot studio in the Old American Can Factory in Gowanus, Brooklyn, a building that is home to hundreds of Brooklyn artists and artisans.
