Jen Kruch

I am an illustrator, designer, and letterpress printer living in the Bay Area. I am also one-half of Shipwright & Co., a letterpress company I started in 2013 with a good friend. We print each piece by hand on a Chandler & Price letterpress that dates back to 1911, and hand-trim each piece on a giant antique Guillotine paper cutter from the 1930s. The majority of work created for clients at Shipwright & Co. begins with custom illustrations we create, which are then transformed into one-of-a-kind and handmade printed pieces.
