About


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 closed as of January 2019, but studio visits can be arranged by appointment. To arrange a visit please contact us.

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.
