a bean, some ink, and her press

I’ve answered to “bean” for over ten years now; it’s a nickname that just kind of stuck.┬áI stumbled into letterpress unexpectedly and was so enamoured by the concept of this lost art.

Raw ink, antique presses, and cotton paper completely intrigued me. After some years of interest and passion, the purchase of some antique presses and some ink, ink & bean press was born.

Our work is a labor of love. By utilizing a minimalistic approach with soft and delicate details that speak for themselves, we create an understated beauty which blends equally well in romantic and modern settings.
