Letterpress & specialty print studio

The most fun you’ll ever have with a printer.

welcome to the studio.

It's where we spend our days printing perfect little pieces for other goodnatured creatives.

Lickety Split Press offers letterpress printing, embossing, die cutting, and other types of specialty printing for talented designers who agree with us that every detail matters. Gone are the days of fingers-crossed, antsy anxiety at the mailbox to see if your printer “got it right.” We’re a very small studio of real nice people who love working hand-in-hand with you to get it perfect every time. We're known for (over?)communicating and for answering questions you didn't even know you had. Whether it’s wedding stationery, brand collateral, or product packaging, the perfect print matters to you — which means it matters to us.

Wholesale custom letterpress & specialty printing

We happily work every day with goodnatured creatives just like you. Transparent pricing, quick communication, and friendly people — what ain’t to like?

A few of our studio capabilities


It all began with this. We transfer your design to a photopolymer plate, lock it up in our vintage restored press, and hand-mix any ink color you like. Letterpress is known for creating a deep impression you can see and feel.

Die Cutting

If you want a shape that isn’t simply a rectangle, then you need a die cut. Circular coasters, rounded corners, or completely unique shapes — die cutting can add that thoughtfully-designed touch to a custom project.


Need something truly eye-catching? Foilstamping uses a heated die with foil sheets to create a reflective surface — metallic, glossy, or matte. This premium process can also be used to print lighter elements on dark paper.

We promise to be the most fun you'll ever have with a printer.

Okay, we know, we know — No one really likes having to talk with their printer (if they'll even communicate 1:1 with you in the first place). What if they end up behind schedule, or their pricing is way off from your budget, or they use technical jargon that makes you want to just crawl in a hole?

We are so not those people. Paper isn't rocket science. It's pretty! It's colorful! It oughta be fun, too.

A note from Emily

I’ve been a designer for a long time. I’ve worked with all kinds of print services — online and local, mass and specialty. And honestly, they all kind of stress me out. I’m never sure if I'm gonna get exactly what I envisioned. That’s why I started Lickety Split.

My clients include small business owners, freelance designers, agencies, wedding planners, and creatives of all stripes. And the things they want to print are always so cool — beautiful, individual, telling their story or bringing their brand to life. And printing is often the last step in the process, after the Pinterest boards are made and the bow’s tied around the brand styleguide.

So what do I get to do? Help you finish strong. Help you take that vision in your head and put it in your hands. Help you have fun with print — whether that’s for your one-and-only Big Day, or as a trusted long-term partner for your creative business. It’s my job, and my joy.

Every custom project puts a book in a child's hands.

Eye candy, please!
