Hammerpress

comment
You may know Hammerpress as the place to ogle concert posters on First Fridays, but this Crossroads anchor offers more than a peep show for design nerds. It's a nationally recognized studio that locals can feel good bragging about. And it's as functional as any design shop in town, turning out stylish invitations, stationery, business cards and other paper staples, all from its old-school letterpress. Feel free to go off-menu as well: When a couple recently wanted a keepsake for their wedding guests, Hammerpress obliged, and one of its in-house designers produced a col-or­ful, concert-style commemorative poster. When another couple needed a ketubah — a Jewish wedding contract that doesn't always inspire award-winning designs — the result was something simultaneously classic and contemporary. It's all done promptly and with a smile, which makes every trip to Hammerpress a delight, even if you're just looking.
Tuesdays-Fridays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Saturdays, 12-5 p.m. Starts: Oct. 7. Continues through Oct. 7, 2010
