My name is Victoria, and thank you for visiting my website.

Founded in 2000, Milkfed Press is a culmination of my many passions: typography, bookbinding, hand-lettering, craftsmanship, problem-solving, design, quality paper, and of course — letterpress printing.

I came to this place the old fashioned way— through hands-on experience, and traditional apprenticeships. I was very fortunate to learn from Master Printers and Master Bookbinders, all pioneers in their respective craft. Through these experiences, I learned to create hand-bound books, to hand-set real lead and wood type, and to operate and care for the printing presses. Once I had a firm grasp on the production-end of creating, my design skills blossomed.

With this history, the help of a computer and a strong dedication to customer service, I strive to work closely with my clients to help them create meaningful pieces for whatever their occasion.

I look forward to hearing from you.
