Welcome to the Arts & Crafts Press! Here at our studio in Tacoma, Washington, Yoshiko Yamamoto and her staff are passionate about printing traditional blockprints and letterpress note cards. We print all the greeting cards using the antique letterpress-printing presses. And our colorful limited-edition linoleum and woodblock prints are made using the multiple hand-carved blocks.

While preserving and advancing the traditional aspects of letterpress and woodblock printing, we're striving to print for our future generations. We're committed to searching for alternative, "greener" printing materials and tools, ecological packaging solutions, and safer studio supplies.

We print, because we care and love our friends, family, and environs. So why not take it one step further and print kinder to ourselves and our earth?     --Yoshiko Yamamoto
