Hi! We’re Jane & Andy Shannon, the owners and operators of Bench Pressed. We are a design and letterpress company based in Minnesota. We started Bench Pressed in 2012, when we bought a small table top letterpress and moved it into our spare bedroom. 5 years later, we’ve moved our shop and expanded to four presses (so far). We now design, print and package our products in our shop in South Minneapolis.
We love making hand-drawn and hand-printed letterpress cards & gifts that we like to call “tongue-in-cheek with a little sweet”. We also love hot sauce (Tabasco for Andy, Louisiana for Jane), beer and our dogs— not in that order.
