Siobhan Ayres and I have been friends for more than 5 years after working together as graphic designers for our area's alt-weekly newspaper. When she left that job, we stayed in touch and kept alive our dream of owning a print shop with retail space for fine paper goods. This space in the newly renovated Carson Block Building in Old Town Eureka, CA became available and we jumped on it. The timing wasn't perfect for us, but we're making it work.
We are now open Tuesday - Saturday, 10am-5:30pm, with most of the printing happening in the mornings. Please stop in and say hello!
