About Pistachio Press
Pistachio Press is a print and design studio located in Cincinnati, Ohio. The press was officially launched during the summer of 2007, though it had been functioning informally since 2003 when founder Rachael Hetzel drove 400 miles to buy her first letterpress. Since then, she has accumulated four more presses. Pistachio Press prints social invitations, slightly snarky stationery, and limited edition prints. We also print commercially for a variety of clients.
Rachael grew up reading books in the woods of a small town in upstate New York. Her love of printed ephemera led her to complete a BFA and MFA in printmaking, which only fueled her passion for paper, ink, equipment, and design. Letterpress printing just felt right. When she isn't printing, Rachael likes to cook elaborate meals with her husband and cuddle with their two dogs, Cassie (a yellow lab), and Pancake Sue (a small super mutt).
Our Eco Practices
We are committed to using environmentally conscious studio practices. We use rubber-based inks and biodegradable citrus-based solvents for press clean-up. We print on 100% tree-free cotton papers or recycled papers that contain at least 30% post-consumer waste and we either re-use or recycle our office and shipping supplies.
