Based in the Pacific Northwest, The Arts & Crafts Press was founded in 1996 by Bruce Smith and Yoshiko Yamamoto. We specialize in crafting letterpress printed note cards and limited-edition block prints. We work with the belief that art is not an object, it is a way of life. We strive to create things of beauty by using our head, our heart, and our hands.
