Mystic Hand Letterpress and Design is me, Cassaundra Laine. I'm a graphic designer and letterpress printer from Evansville, Indiana. I received my Bachelor's of Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) in May 2014. I woke up one day last September with the realization that my happiness lies in the bed of a press, that I'm lucky enough to have the means and the support to open my own studio. By the end of November, I'd bought two presses, packed my life into a u-haul, and moved back home. My presses and I moved into our space downtown in the beginning of June 2015, and I've spent the summer prepping the space for opening.
While there's still a lot of work to be done, the goal is to be fully operational by the end of August, with set retail and consulting hours by the Fall.
I appreciate your patience as I get things up and running in the shop and online, and I welcome you watch the shop's progress both on this site and through Facebook & Instagram!
Though things are busy, I am still accepting new clients for both design and letterpress projects that do not have immediate deadlines. Feel free to reach out using the contact form on this site, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in getting a quote!
