The Iron Beast Press

We are a digital agency. With a letterpress shop.

The Iron Beast Press is one of our creative releases. There is nothing like getting your hands dirty—carving blocks, locking up type. We try as often as possible to hit the presses and make something from scratch. It keeps us thinking, refreshed and above all, humble. 

From time to time, we'll add some current work to this page.

YMCA Notebook

2016
Before attending the 2016 YMCA conference at YMCA of the Rockies, we put together a hand-made sketch book to give away at our vendor booth. The hand carved "Y" and variety of set image blocks were highlighted with a rustmedia-orange friendship bracelet, campy at its best. 

Hulk Smash

2015
This was an different take on a letterpress poster. The base was a laser print of a custom comic book cover for the Cape Comic Con. We then printed a hand carved Hulk in a transparent green.

Merry & Bright

2015
Our 2015 company Christmas card was the perfect end of year project for our team. A good night of printing a mix of set type and carved wood made this one.
