From Our Editors
As a second-generation printing press run by the same family for the last 40 years, Paper Chase Press straddles the line between tradition and modernity. The family's techniques are tried-and-true—all of their custom products, from books and invitations to calendars and posters, are made in the shop by hand. The eco-friendly outfit uses only Forest Stewardship Council–certified paper and American-made materials to produce its bespoke creations, which, in a digitized world, hold more meaning than an online photo or a business card scrawled across a DVD.
Taking a page from more contemporary operations, Paper Chase Press allows customers to lay out and design projects on its site or upload existing projects as PDFs. From there, the printing whizzes transfer designs onto their final resting pages.
