Hi! I’m Karolina, the owner and creative force behind impressus.

My fascination with letterpress printing began in 2013 while planning my wedding. The beauty and elegance of letterpress was so captivating that all I started thinking about was learning how to print myself.

I took a letterpress workshop in March 2014 and the hands-on experience ignited an even brighter spark. And in June 2014 I acquired the stunning Golding Pearl Improved No.11. The Golding presses were manufactured in Boston in the early 1900s and I’m still amazed that I get to use one of those presses in my studio today.

Every time I’m at the press I learn something new. Letterpress printing is a time-consuming process that requires patience, dedication and precision. Often, it’s a trial and error type of experience. But the payback is so worth it and I love it. I take pride in the products I make and, if you entrust me with your project, you can be assured that I will put my heart and soul into it.
