about Lady Pilot Letterpress

"My interest was piqued over 20 years ago on a road trip across Michigan. I stopped at a barn sale (kinda like a yard sale, but in a huge old barn) and I found wood type."

From the helm of her curmudgeonly press, Emily whips wickedly sarcastic cards into shape. But she wasn't always a wizard of the wood type. In fact, when Emily first stumbled across the stuff nearly twenty years ago, she wasn't even sure what it was––but it got her curious. And that curiosity combined with a sharp wit and an appreciation for design led to boxes upon boxes of hilarity in card form. She's a self-taught designer, so that part of the process is challenging––nothing she can't handle. Emily is inspired by early 20th century posters and the smell of ink. show more
