Custom Printing  
Red Bat Press honors the history and methods of traditional letterpress printing. Custom designs are created using existing movable metal type, "dingbats", printer's blocks and hand carved woodblocks and are printed on a table-top press that is nearly 75 years old. Red Bats' specialities are postcard or card announcements(Birth, Graduation, Just Moved, etc.), holiday cards, business or calling cards, personalized stationery, and broadsides (poetry or otherwise). Or take a Letterpress Workshop and print a calling card, or short poem with your own hands with guidance!

Contact to discuss a quote for a print job you have in mind. You provide the text and image choice, and I'll make it look pretty.

Here are examples of custom jobs that were printed in the past.
