Welcome to The Firecracker Press, a letterpress design studio in St. Louis, Missouri. We are thinkers and makers, those of contemplation and action. We combine modern means with tried-and-true techniques to make things that people love seeing and feeling.

Since 2002 we’ve been inspired by simple precision, high quality, and a hybrid of the new and old. This collection of stationery, posters, and paper goods bubbled up from the in-between moments. Given a little time, a few conversations, and the desire to see what’s around the corner, we found ourselves moved by childhood memories, favorite foods, and cosmic connections. These ephemeral notions come with vivid color, humor, and a fine dose of Midwest élan. Please enjoy!

Comfy cotton or petite polka dot, everyone has their preferences. Nothing shows better on the outside, than that which we keep on the inside. Pick a pair of undies or put on a Boobie Button and don’t look back!
