About Us

Clawhammer Press is one of few commercial letterpress shops in Western Canada. We operate our production studio and gallery in historic downtown in Fernie, BC.

Our studio also includes a retail gallery space specializing in unique gifts, paper products, and typography-based merchandise including greeting cards, journals, prints, apparel, and music posters.

We operate the press regularly during the week, and while we may not always be turning it over with ink on a given project, we will be happy to explain the process at any time. Please stop by during our retail hours and see what makes letterpress printing so unique.

For more detailed information, check out our Studio, Equipment, and Story pages.

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