All of our work is hand-printed on antique presses marrying centuries-old techniques with modern technology. Our thick 100% cotton paper not only enhances the depth and beauty of the letterpress process, but has the added benefit of being tree-free. We pair our creations with recycled envelopes as well as fully sustainable display packaging. Designs range from classic and elegant to witty and irreverent making us a letterpress source for every occasion. The exquisite texture and quality of the finished pieces are certain to make an impression!

Keep an eye out for little Albertine announcing our newest offerings throughout the catalog.

Meet Albertine | Press

Albertine Press is a Boston-area design and letterpress print shop owned and operated by Shelley Barandes, a sometime-architect who just loved paper more. Since its founding in 2005, Albertine Press has grown from a small custom design and print studio to producing a large collection of greeting cards, note cards, coasters and journals available at stationery stores and gift boutiques across the country.

Letterpress Library

Meet the Letterpress Library - each volume in the library contains one set of our award-winning decorative 4-bar note cards, creating a beautiful ensemble collection. The cover designs recall classic bookcovers but with a modern feel; they are printed on recycled stock, eliminating the need for plastic and vinyl packaging.

Plus, we think they look pretty spiffy all in a row. In fact, we’ve created some Albertine bookends to keep these guys in line for display, whether on a shelf or tabletop, so they’ll always look their best in your shop. The black, powder-coated bookends are 3” tall.
