Welcome to Letterpress Expressions

Letterpress Expressions is a small print studio located in Prince George, Virginia, just outside of Richmond and Petersburg. We specialize in letterpress printed wedding invitations but also enjoy creating customized stationery for any event.  We are happy to work with you to create wedding invitations from scratch, or to print your design. We encourage you to take a look around and view our portfolio. If you like what you see, feel free to contact us using the contact form, above.

Sarah Hamm
Founder, Designer, Printer

Sarah is the founder of Letterpress Expressions. She started printing on a small tabletop press in 2010 and has been hooked ever since. When she's not working with clients or printing, you can find her gardening, playing with her chickens or dogs, or basically pretending to be a farmer.

Gertie Sue
Lean, Mean Printing Machine (Literally)

Gertie Sue is the backbone of the print shop. She is an old style 8x12 Chandler & Price printing press. She was originally built in 1894 and has (knowingly) spent time in Wisconsin, North Carolina, and Virginia. Sad and rusted, she spent years in the back of a tow garage (until Sarah and Chris came along). Gertie underwent an extensive restoration between 2012-2013, and has been running like a champ ever since.

Chris Hamm
Printer, Paper cutter, Master Press Restorer

Chris is an all-around helper in the print shop. He's also an expert press restorer. He completely disassembled, cleaned, rebuilt and painted Gertie Sue and has plans to start on a Chandler & Price 10 x 15 soon. In his spare time, Chris works on renovating our first home, a brick ranch straight out of 1964.
