We started Bench Pressed in 2012 on a tabletop press (pictured on the front cover) in our spare bedroom, and 6 years later we’re still going strong with three larger presses. We still design, print, and package all of our products in house with the help of some badass ladies.

You can find us at our South Minneapolis shop with our two shop dogs, Lupita (pictured on the back cover) and Joe and chasing after our newest human addition to the Bench Pressed team, Aaron.

Thank You
