Welcome to Woodside Press, a traditional letterpress printing studio located in New York City's historic Brooklyn Navy Yard. We create printed items of the highest quality for individual, business, and institutional clients. To the graphic-design community we offer typesetting and type-reproduction services, and we are also New York City's leading facility for hot-metal typography, with Linotype and Ludlow typecasting machines and an impressive range of classic and decorative typefaces.
Woodside Press began in 1993 in Woodside, Queens, and moved in 1998 to our current home, with a spectacular view of the Manhattan skyline, in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. In the years we've been in operation, we have built an unparalleled collection of late 19th and 20th century printing type, including foundry type to set by hand, a huge variety of wooden type for posters and headlines,
and an array of Linotype and Ludlow hot-metal typefaces.
We also have printing presses to suit any kind of letterpress printing project from large-volume runs of business cards to posters up to 18" x 24" in any quantity. Woodside Press has produced work for many New York City institutions including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Juilliard School, and the Museum of Modern Art. In fact, it was our handset metal type that became the basis for the iconic MoMA logo that adorns the front of 2004 museum building in midtown Manhattan.
But we also work with individuals to design and print customized wedding invitations, business cards, and personal stationery sets. With our unique and extensive collection of type, plus years of experience in the field, you are guaranteed a beautiful and one-of-a-kind finished product. We work one-on-one with our clients (and their designers) and can tailor any project to suite your budget.
