About Locust Street Press

Old Fashion Letterpress Print Shop in Illinois

Locust Street Press Printing Press

Locust Street Press is a full-service, old world, yet modern print shop located in the heart of the northern Midwest.  On any given day you’ll find our presses humming along down a sleepy street in Belvidere, Illinois.  We are trade printers at heart with a bent towards the art world.  But really, we are just a small family business who thrives on creativity and beauty in the small details.  Oh, and coffee, lots of coffee.  You –printers, graphic designers, every day folk- are ridiculously creative and we love bringing your designs to life.  We have found that running a letterpress shop is like a treasured friendship.  Something a bit more than words can describe, something you just have to touch (and be touched by) to know its true beauty.  Really, nothing compares to handmade.  So pull up a chair, let’s create something together.
