About

Opening a letterpress studio has been a dream of mine for years now. As a professional graphic designer for 20 years, I felt a pull to do things with a more hands-on approach. Longing to get back to my creative roots, I opened Type Smash in the spring of 2019. It has been a whirlwind of creative thoughts and random inspiration since it’s inception. My mission with Type Smash is to help individuals and companies achieve their creative goals through this unique printing process. Specializing in custom wedding invitations (or any other type of invitation), specialty business cards, stationery, and corporate event collateral, Type Smash is both a full-service creative design studio and a letterpress printing studio. I am able to conceptualize and design your dream invitation; or for those already skilled at design, simply print your design on an original Chandler-Price letterpress.

Located in Northern Michigan, Type Smash runs 2 original Chandler & Price new-style letterpresses. The presses can accommodate metalic, neon, and custom PMS inks.
