As sisters, New Jerseyans, and third-generation printers, we—Amy Salvini Swanson and Beth Salvini—quit our day jobs and opened the doors of Greenwich Letterpress in early 2005; bringing wit and pop-culture wisdom to the heart of New York City’s West Village. Now celebrating over 14 years of a women owned business!
We specialize in custom letterpress weddings, announcements/invitations, and stationery, we also offer a uniquely curated shop of letterpress greeting cards, letter sets, notebooks, and gifts—featuring our own line and others just as distinct. In addition, we offer our own collection of neighborhood key tags (fictional and NYC neighborhoods) and distinctive enamel pins. Launching our first designs of enamel lapel pins in 2009—when jean jackets were just denim—we’re excited to see how far they have come!
Greenwich Letterpress is not only interested in creating and producing paper goodness and lust-worthy gifts, we also care about the environment. All of our paper is either made from 100% tree-free post-consumer cotton or is 100% recycled. Not to mention, our inks are soy based. With our work being produced by 100% wind energy, our small carbon footprint is something to be proud of. We are also featured members of Greenopia (a group of green friendly businesses throughout the country) as well as some of the founding members of Greenprint (a coalition of environmentally friendly printers in the northeast). We know protecting the environment is not only dear to us, but also our clients, so we do our best to be one of the greenest letterpress printers in the business.
In the New York City? Stop by the shop and talk paper and pop-culture with us.
