The Firecracker Press

A modern business built on vintage machinery, The Firecracker Press is situated on two locations in St. Louis, Missouri.  At the Old North St. Louis branch, it surrounds itself amongst a unique mixture of businesses and residence on 14th Street. Visitors are welcome to tour the gallery of press machines, fonts, and plan their next custom order. The second location, at Cherokee, is a growing business area and perfect for any explorer to see a more hipster side to the city. This space is for retail purposes, and guests can purchase completed projects here.

The Firecracker Press opened shop in February of 2002. The business is a letterpress design studio that combines antique printing technology with modern thinking to produce objects that bring pleasant surprises to joyful occasions. Visitors will experience a wide range of services that will fit their event needs.

The Firecracker Press creates posters, prints, social stationery, greeting cards, business cards, invitations for events such as weddings, events, and receptions. Visitors will quickly realize that this small business works hard to design the best quality of print for its customers. TFP is innovative in new designs, responsive to its market trends, and the last thing from generic in its final product.

Locally or Family-Owned Business Notes

This company is eco-friendly. All ink is rescued from printers no longer in business. TFP rescues presses that would otherwise get to the dumpsters of the city, and eventually enter landfills. Instead, they are used in our store to create beautiful pieces of art that end up in the hands of happy customers. Also, there is a big usage in recycled content paper inside the shop. A big portion of the jobs made are printed in 100% recycled paper. The Firecracker Press is proud to be locally owned, and enjoys keeping in touch with the community through its blog and other social media accounts to provide the best service.
