Irene Matthew Parker, Owner
Opening Pelican Letterpress has been a dream of mine for the past few years. I took my first Letterpress class in 2012 at Ole Miss and it opened my eyes to a whole new world.
While I was getting my masters degree at FSU, I became an apprentice at Sangha Press which is what made me realize that letterpress printing is what I want to do with my life. The owner, Mika Fowler, taught me a great deal about the history, the presses and the importance of continuing the tradition.
My goal is to take my fine arts background and knowledge of printing to provide my customers with beautiful products while also sharing some of the tradition.
