DWRI Letterpress is a custom letterpress print shop focusing on print collaborations with designers, artists, fellow printers, and all those in need of fine letterpress printing. Founded by Dan Wood, and located in Providence, Rhode Island, projects can vary from simple stationery, wedding invitations and announcements of all kinds, to broadsides, artists books, and editioned fine art relief prints.

Capabilities include short and long run letterpress printing on a 10x15 Heidelberg Windmill, a 10x15 Chandler and Price, a Vandercook No. 4, and an automatic fed cylinder MAN Poly 50. Foil stamping, die-cutting, and many bindery/finishing techniques are also available.¶ Jobs can be produced from digital files (which are sent to film and converted to polymer plates in house), hand set in a variety of lead and wood type, as well as newly cast in lead from the original brass matrices in 6 to 72pt type on our Linotype or Ludlow typecasters. ¶ Turnaround time depends greatly on the details and complexity of the project. Please contact Dan for a quote and time estimate.
