Sappling Bookcraft & Letterpress

Seattle, Washington

“When I pull a print for the first time, you can hear me shouting like a lunatic. It takes such a long time to convert a sketch to a hand-carved block that getting to the final product makes me a smidge giddy.”

A volunteer gig at the center for book arts in New York turned out to be a pretty good decision for Sarah – mostly because it led her to create her current company, Sappling Bookcraft & Letterpress. Her handsome letterpress prints are praised for both their simplicity and depth (a.k.a. awesomeness), and everything is designed and put together by hand (hers, in particular). So if you're on a quest for a little somethin' somethin' that'll hang nicely on just about any wall, Sarah aims to please with solid design and (even more solid) craftsmanship.
