Iron Heart Press was originally founded in 2009 as Brown Dog Paper and rebranded in 2016. Don’t worry — Brown Dog, the shop dog and Lead Production Overseer, retained his employment throughout the rebranding. We specialize in fun, eclectic, and slightly off-putting letterpress designs. We print on a collective four tons of cast iron and steel, including a 12×18 Chandler & Price, an 8×12 Chandler & Price, a Vandercook 325G, a Vandercook SP-15, a Heidelberg 10×13, and two Adana 8x5s. In our next rebrand, we are considering “Iron Heart Home for Wayward Presses”.
In addition to printing, the owner, Meghan Paine, is passionate about teaching and regularly leads workshops and classes at Atlanta Printmaker’s Studio and local festivals. Check our blog and calendar for upcoming events. You might even run into Brown Dog.
