Sesame Letterpress


55 Washington St., Ste. 608,
United States,

In the northern Brooklyn neighborhood of DUMBO, this boutique letterpress printing studio is operated by husband and wife team Matt Heindl and Breck Hostetter. For almost a decade, Sesame Letterpress has specialized in the creation of wedding announcements, invitations, business cards, artists’ publications, and personal stationery with the use of antique cast-iron plate presses from the Victorian era. Only recycled materials are used for producing orders, which are completed by hand and on-site in the shop’s small, brightly lit studio warehouse. Classes are also regularly taught on how to use a press, as well as make stationery and plates.
