We're Jane & Andy Shannon

Owners and operators of Bench Pressed

We are a design and letterpress company based in Minneapolis Minnesota. We founded Bench Pressed in 2012 when we bought a small tabletop letterpress and moved it into our spare bedroom. Ten years later, expanded into a studio-slash-retail space and care for six vintage presses (and counting). We now design, print and package our products out of our shop in the Seward neighborhood. We love making hand-drawn and -printed letterpress cards and gifts that are "tongue-in-cheek with a little sweet."

We also love hot sauce (Queen Majesty's Cocoa Ghost for Andy, Boon Chili Crisp for Jane), and our kids… most of the time.  

Come say hello! You also can reach us on Instagram and at
