Blue Camas Press Blockprints & Letterpress

Blue Camas Press is my creative outlet for hand-made print projects. I create linoleum blockprints and print them using my 1896 Chandler & Price platen letterpress. I create a variety of works on paper: cards, prints, tags, coasters, calendars, and other ephemera. I also do custom letterpress printing: business cards, invitations, announcements, etc.

Some samples of letterpress projects

Carving linoleum

The majority of Blue Camas Press cards are made from hand-carved linoleum blocks. I sketch them, plan out the color separations, and carve the blocks before setting up to print.

The widest selection of my cards is available at First Alternative Co-op North Store. I also sell my work at First Alternative Co-op South Store, The Arts Center, Corvallis and at the South Town Art Walk, which is held each year on the first Sunday in December. I also have a small Etsy shop.

All of the samples below are available as cards, and many as prints also.
