BEST PRINT SHOP/DESIGN

UNION PRESS

440 SOMERVILLE AVE. In 2010, Union Press carved out a home in an old print shop that hadn’t been used in a decade. Since then, the shop’s artisans have done nearly all of their work by hand using antique presses and traditional print methods, and you’ll recognize their bold typefaces and vivid, colorful images from the posters for local events including the Union Square Farmers Market and the Somerville Winter Farmers Market. These artists can also create unique and eye-catching party invites, stationery, business cards and more.

DAVIS SQUARED Owner Melisa Ford Christie is neck-deep in Davis Square pride. “[My husband] Paul and I live in Davis Square, our kids go to school in Davis Square, you know, our whole life is wrapped up in this community. We believe so much in it, and I feel like we project that.” Her gift shop glows with good vibes and smells like the artisanal soaps you can find on the shelves. Soon, the store will be bustling with even more activity as holiday season rolls around.
