Carrot & Stick Press has been creating one-of-a-kind paper products which marry contemporary design with the artisanal process of letterpress printing for almost 12 years. Since our humble beginning in 2000 using a borrowed press in a drafty Berkeley barn where our production was limited by the evening stirrings of a family of raccoons, our guiding principle has been: Anything worth doing is worth doing well (a quotation which is variously attributed to Lord Chesterfield, Charles Dickens and Hunter S. Thompson!). Today, all production is done on-site at our Oakland, California studio where we employ four antique presses to produce our distinctive paper collection as well as our bespoke invitations, announcements and stationery. Our printers are hard at work ensuring that every hand-printed piece meets our exacting standards.
