Catherine Polacek is the founder and owner of Printerette Press, a boutique design and letterpress studio located in the Highland Park neighborhood of St. Paul, Minnesota. She offers custom fine printed goods, a small collection of everyday products, and full custom design and printing for special occasions and business identities.
Being head-over-heels for the craftsmanship and tactile nature of letterpress printing, the real star of the Printerette Show is Cathrine's 100-year-old, 1000-pound vintage Chandler & Price platen press. Each and every Printerette piece, after it is designed, critiqued, and edited, is lovingly hand-fed on her press, one at a time, with careful attention to detail.
Cathrine is a total sweetheart with smiles and laughs that go for miles. Need letterpress help? She's got your back.
