Fine Letterpress Printing and Custom Stationary Designs. So much of our letterpress invitation and silk screened print work comes from outside the Roanoke valley - we feel that it's only proper to acknowledge the hard work, growth and support we get from the entire East Coast region. We reconfigured the storefront to include a comfortable consultation area for brides, babies and stationery lovers. Our newest location: The Marketplace at Black Dog ...Salvage. 902 13th Street, SW, Roanoke. (Open 9-5 daily, closed Sunday.) Appalachia Press (downtown) is by appointment only Monday - Friday and is open to the public Saturdays 9-5. After nine years of non-stop letterpress printing, we have sharpened our letterpress skills and are producing some of our most beautiful wedding announcements ever! The stationery is simple and elegant...and we've added 165 new cards to our line! Our commitment to staying "green" is still going strong. Our soy-based inks and non-wood based papers makes the world a healthier place to live. Heck, our most favorite press doesn't even use electricity! At Appalachia Press, we honor the labor and elegance of past traditions. Our printmaking is a union of art, historical traditions and modern design. With the commonality of computers, we forget the origins of type and how images are created. Silkscreen and Letterpress are antique printing processes and have roots that go back five-hundred years or more. John Reburn has been a working artist for nearly 30 years. Trained at Arizona State University and Otis Art Institute, he worked in Los Angeles before moving to Roanoke ten years ago. Specializing in printmaking and design, he has worked for entertainment companies including Disney and NBC; non-profit organizations such as Bet Tzedek, the Larry King Foundation and the Tiger Woods Foundation; and designed posters for broadway theatrical productions, musicians, and live concert venues.
