carolyn-portrait_4_retouched-oHello! I’m Carolyn Sweeney, owner, designer, and print artist behind Black Dog Press, a letterpress printing company. Back in 2001 we named the company after our ever-present black lab puppy, Rocket. While sweet old Rocket is no longer with us, Black Dog Press continues designing and printing custom invitations and announcements, as well as greeting cards and stationery for retail outlets.

When I’m not printing wedding invitations, stationery, and greeting cards, I am the enthusiastic manager of Two Hands Paperie in Boulder, Colorado. With an educational background in Fine Arts and Architecture, I find great pleasure in tiny and exacting creative endeavors, such as setting type to use in my vintage Chandler and Price letter press or creating miniature worlds in old candy tins.

Black Dog Press studios also offers workshops in both Beginning and Intermediate Letterpress printing. Sign up at www.twohandspaperie.com or contact me directly at carolyn@blackdogpressonline.com.
