    Print & Press Shop & Studios is among the newest additions to the downtown Canton Arts District. Two local maker brands—Little Chicago Clothing Co., run by Amy and Greg Eibel, and Letterpress Jess, run by Jess and Doug Bennett—will join forces to launch Print & Press, a combination of retail shop and fully-functioning printing studio, featuring handmade letterpress and screen printed goods on textiles and paper.

    Located at 429 Fourth Street NW next to Journey, the front retail space features a creative, eclectic boutique showcasing fine paper goods from Letterpress Jess (greeting cards and stationery, journals, art prints, and other sundry and gift items) and wearable creations from Little Chicago (tees, tanks, fleece and more), along with more than a dozen other handmade brands from makers all over Ohio.

    The back studio space is a fully-functioning workshop where the goods for sale are manufactured by hand by the partners.

    COMING SOON: Print & Press hopes to curate additional product lines for sale within the shop, create collaborative products between the two brands, curate salon-style exhibits of regional artists and host workshops.
