The Firecracker Press opened shop in February of 2002 as St. Louis, Missouri’s only graphic design studio and letterpress printshop. The Firecracker Press combines antique printing technology with new thinking to design and produce objects that people enjoy seeing and feeling. Using computer design software to conceive ideas, The Firecracker Press still carves woodblocks and prints by hand to produce event posters, business cards, party invitations, advertising and more. The Firecracker Press continues to enjoy a vital presence amongst the thriving Cherokee Street art and culture scene, as well as opening a newly expanded space in Old North, and establishing a non-profit organization: http://
