Ahoy! There is a new letterpress shop in town! Steam Whistle Letterpress just had their grand opening last night. My fiance and I stopped by to have a looksy, and boy am I glad that we did. We got to see some really beautiful pieces of machinery (presses) and we actually got to speak to the proud owner himself, Brian Stuparyk.
Every so often, I meet someone who has such a strong passion for their work that it completely seeps out of them. Brian is definitely one of those people. It was really enchanting for us to hear him speak about his shop and future plans with such excitement. Also, fun fact, Brian recently taught/teaches part time at Northern Kentucky University, which is where I received my BFA. It was really refreshing to speak with someone who has some of the same college connections as myself.
If you are interested in learning more about Steam Whistle Letterpress and Design, they are located at 1342 Main Street, Cincinnati, OH and you can check out their website too (linked above). Steam Whistle will offer workshops in the future, such as the one coming up on February 4th. You can read more about that in the flyer pictured below. I can tell you, if you are looking for something new and different to do-than this is it! If you are interested, I would sign up quick because there are only 4 seats available!
