Hyped on Type.

B.IMPRESSED Shop focuses on typography based design and letterpress printing. We love working with small businesses and individuals on creating a visual identity that matches their ambitions.

The shop is located within the Brooklyn Navy Yard, housed within Woodside Press, a full service letterpress shop. Bessie has been letterpress printing for 9 years and her work in the shop and on screen are very closely connected. She spends time gathering lots of information from her clients so she can design with intention – creating designs that compliment and draw out the subtleties of their brand.


Typography n. 

1. the style and appearance of printed matter

  •  The art or procedure of arranging type or processing data and printing from it.

2.  the style, arrangement, or appearance of printed letters on a page


about b.

Bessie is a graphic designer and letterpress printer who loves working with type in its 3D and 2D forms.  She likes to imagine her print and web work holding hands and often intersects them by pulling in printed scans or incorporating type she uses in the shop. 

Aren't these two things polar opposites?  Yes However, Bessie sees them as two different ways of working with type and enjoys their differences. Working in the shop influences how she works digitally and vice versa. Knowing that most individuals + businesses need both, she enjoys being able to work with them across both medias. 

How did you get started?  While studying at Massachusetts College of Art and Design, B found the letterpress shop on campus and took a weekend workshop over the summer. After this class, she knew typography would be a main focus in her life. B left Graphic Design and graduated as an Open Major so she could focus on letterpress printing and started B.IMPRESSED Shop in 2010. 

Can we collaborate?  Yes! We often work with other printers, designers and photographers on a freelance basis. If you're interested in working together please get in touch
