Robin and Brannon Carter of R&B Printery, in Spartanburg, South Carolina are reviving the age-old art of letterpress printing.  Creating handmade, eco-friendly works of art to inspire your family’s handwritten memories.Vintage Printing PressesAbove: Brannon works to ready a printing job on a vintage Craftsman style Chandler & Price printing press, circa 1927.

The gentle squeak, metal clanking and whir of a century-old printing press provides a rhythmic symphony of sounds as they feed and print each card one-at-a-time.  Vintage wood and metal hand-set typographic letters are combined with Robin’s hand-drawn designs and a vibrant color palette of hand-mixed soy and reclaimed inks.One in Melon Macro Above: The hallmark characteristic of letterpress art is the deep, sunken impression of the print.

Robin and Brannon are artisans by trade and environmentalists at heart.  As a Green America® Certified Business, they strive to protect natural forests and the wildlife that depend on them by diverting reusable paper waste from landfills.  Post-consumer recycling helps create a sustainable market for recycled materials.  They encourage their clients to continue the cycle by recycling or composting their letterpress cards and biodegradable, plant-based bio-sleeve packaging.

Stop by their booth on June 2-3, 2017 during our Vintage Charlotte Summer Market and check out their complete line of special occasion and general greeting cards.  They also do custom printing for special events and businesses!Sweet Birthday Icecream Fathers Day Crane Thank You Angles
