“We love old scientific books and illustrations, folk art, and history. We also enjoy tall tales, unusual animals, and bad jokes. A lot of our work is inspired by stories, so Bobby often can be found in the library reading old diaries and reference books for inspiration.”

Love of woodcut + masterful printshop experience + a degree in graphic design + love of savaging old type and folklore = an equation of two people who, with their combined skills, make for one very impressive team summary. And Sara and Bobby’s unique yet nostalgic take on letterpress design is one that, because of their background and painstakingly nostalgic process, really stands out. Just A Jar is one of the only letterpress shops around still making posters the old fashioned way; each color of every print is meticulously carved and printed from woodblocks, type set by hand from lead and wood type (some which date back over a century) and prints are printed on manual presses. In other words, saying that everything that this team does is old-fashioned and handmade is an understatement to the umpth degree.
