About

carolyn-portrait_4_retouched-oHello! I’m Carolyn Sweeney, owner, designer, and print artist behind Black Dog Press, a letterpress and digital printing company based in Boulder, Colorado. 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.

With an educational background in Fine Arts and Architecture, I find great pleasure in the exacting process of setting type and printing on one of my vintage Chandler and Price presses. I also offer flat (digital) printing as a less expensive alternative to letterpress printing.

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.
