It’s fairly simple, really.  Good things come from doing what you love.  Twin Ravens Press was born when a love of creating gorgeous, contemporary graphic design was coupled with a love of antique heavy-machinery, beautiful handmade papers and centuries-old craftsmanship.

At Twin Ravens Press, we understand good design and beautiful stationery go beyond paper and ink.  We believe that the draw of holding something in your hands and having a connection with the person who created it is basic and universal. We all want something authentic and personal; something with a story behind it.

About Kristin

Owner • Designer • Letterpress Printer

When Kristin Walker discovered letterpress printing in the spring of 2003, she found herself immediately drawn to the rhythmic sounds of hundred-year-old antique machinery, the smell of printer’s inks and oil mingling together, and the deliciously tactile impression of metal type and images on cotton paper. A chance connection and quick friendship with a retired, third-generation letterpress printer, Bob Giles, reignited Kristin’s passion for antique machinery and old-fashioned printing…she quit her marketing job in order to found Twin Ravens Press in the fall of 2007.

About Letterpress

In one word: Awesome!

In a few more words: In 1440 letterpress printing was invented by Johannes Gutenberg (of the “Gutenberg Press” and “Gutenberg Bible”) with the then-modern technology of movable type, wherein a reversed, raised surface (text or image) was inked and then pressed into a sheet of paper to obtain a positive right-reading image, one color at a time, one sheet at a time. Movable type was first invented in China using ceramic type in 1040 AD, and the Koreans developed movable metal type in 1100 AD, but it wasn’t until Gutenberg’s invention of a wooden printing press, based on a previously-existing wine press model, that printing with metal type came to the forefront of book-reproduction technology. With the advent of industrial mechanization, inking began to be carried out by rollers, instead of by hand, even further speeding the process, which paved the way for a broader dissemination of art and knowledge into the 20th century.
