In Haus Press is a stationery brand in San Francisco created by Treasa Ewing.
Combining an enduring love of paper with a subtle eye for detail, In Haus Press launched in 2010 bringing beautiful understated stationery to those who appreciate stylish handwritten notes.
"Slow printing", our hand-fed printing process, emphasizes manual printing on our 3 antique printing presses.
Our products include modern social correspondence, note cards, invitations, announcements, and limited edition prints that feature original typography and historic wood type.
Everything is designed, printed, photographed and packaged in-house, in her San Francisco studio, thus the name: In Haus Press.
Letterpress printing is a technique of relief printing using a printing press.
We compose and lock movable type into the bed of a press, ink it, and press paper against it to transfer the ink from the type.
Letterpress printing was the normal form of printing text from its invention by Johannes Gutenberg in the mid-15th century until the 19th century and remained in wide use for books and other uses until the second half of the 20th century.
Letterpress printing remained the primary way to print and distribute information until the twentieth century, when offset printing was developed, which largely supplanted its role in printing books and newspapers.
More recently, letterpress printing has seen a revival in an artisanal form.
We have 3 antique presses in our studio:
Adana 8 x 5
Craftsmen 6.5 x 10
