Sea Heart City Press because my heart is always wedged between the city and the sea.
I'm Meredith Akery. I am the creator, designer, and printer of Sea Heart City Press (est. 2013). I make letterpress cards that make you want to send real mail. My concise, heartfelt, sharp witted, hand-lettered and illustrated designs are inspired by a childhood at the beach and growing wiser in Madrid, NYC, London, DC and now Philadelphia. I crank out the hits in the historic Crane Arts building in beautiful Kensington on my vintage presses: a Chandler & Price 10 x 15, a Kelsey Excelsior 6 x 10, a Kelsey Model U 5 x 8 and a Golding Official #4.
