Founded in 2003 by Mike Dacey, Repeat Press is a full-scale contemporary letterpress studio, offering custom letterpress printing to designers, businesses, creative agencies, and individuals. Combining the knowledge of centuries-old print processes with an understanding of current-day design needs, Repeat Press is uniquely equipped to produce tactile, distinctive work at any project size. 

All work produced by Repeat Press is custom. Prospective clients are encouraged to reach out with questions and ideas for upcoming projects - please see the contact page for further info. Photopolymer plates are used in nearly all projects and allow for client designs to be printed exactly as envisioned. However, the studio does maintain an extensive assortment of vintage wood type which can be used to complement any project.

The Repeat Press studio houses a versatile array of presses including two 10x15 Heidelberg Windmills, a Vandercook SP20, and 10x15 Chandler & Price platen. Finishing techniques such as die cutting, scoring, duplexing, edge painting, and drilling are often called for and can be done in house. Other finishing options such as binding and laminating can be fulfilled through our network of outside vendors.

Repeat Press is located in Fringe, a multidisciplinary coworking space in Union Square, Somerville. Fringe houses over 15 other small businesses and creative studios, and has established itself as a hub of talent and creativity on a local and national level. Repeat Press founder Mike Dacey is also the director of Fringe, overseeing the growth and direction of the space.
