Clawhammer Press is one of few letterpress shops in Western Canada. It is the working studio of artist & printer Michael Hepher.

Working largely in fine-art prints and ephemeral paper goods that integrate hand-carved blocks, typography, and a slightly off-beat sense of humour, Michael uses a variety of process to get ink on paper.

For more detailed information, check out our Studio, Equipment, and Story pages. The gallery is open to the public two days per week, allowing customers to view the vintage equipment and historic processes used in the work.

Our hours are:
Friday: 12noon-5pm
Saturday: 12am-5pm
Sunday: Closed
Monday-Thursday: Closed

For a bit more about our shop, and our raison d’etre, have a look at this short video by Emmy at Lost and Found Videos, which gives a great look at the heart of Clawhammer Press.
