Our Story

Matthew & Elizabeth E. Winheld, owners of SWEET letterpress & design

Every day, we all get hundreds of emails, texts, status updates, tweets, etc. But how often do you get something cool in the mail? You know, something other than bills and catalogs? We're willing to bet it's not often enough. And we think that's just wrong.

Hi, we're Elizabeth and Matthew and we make sweet stuff.  

We began SWEET letterpress & design in 2007 with a mission to help preserve thoughtful correspondence and have been making letterpress invitations, greeting & note cards and gifts ever since. Our paper goods are carefully crafted in Boulder, Colorado using only high quality, eco friendly materials.
We make letterpress stationery for all of life's sweetest moments.



The Studio
Our North Boulder studio is home to a 1893 Chandler & Price Old Style (stylishly painted red and black) and a Heidelberg Windmill from 1956. With concrete floors, high ceilings, lots of white paint, and, of course, antique presses, it's a great blend of industrial chunk and modern chic. We love it here and we hope you'll visit soon. You don't need a real reason to stop by, just be sure to let us know you're coming as our schedule can vary from week to week. Take the virtual studio tour on Flickr.

The Back Story

Brooklyn, New York. 2006. A graphic designer and illustrator decided to design our own wedding invitation. After several detailed prototypes, hundreds of dollars spent in hand-made paper, and many grueling August days of assembly, that first invitation was made and SWEET Letterpress & Design was born. See where it all began... Our wedding on theKnot.com
