42 Pressed is headed up by Jackie Robinson. No, not the baseball player, but a girl who married into the Robinson name, and thought it was too amazing not to name her letterpress company after the late baseball player, who’s number was 42.
First and foremost, Jackie is a designer who then discovered the art of letterpress - developed a little fling - and often toyed with the idea of opening her own shop. Then, a Vandercook 15-21 popped up in Indiana, and the rest is history. It became a full blown relationship (business and love) as Jackie went in for the buy and garnered her first press! She realized that this was her press and her press alone, and that marked the day when the fun of printing and the marriage with 42 Pressed really began!
When not printing or designing, you can find her hanging out with her pretty incredible husband, Tyler Robinson, who is head of our marketing department, her beagle-walker mix, Boadey, and their sweet little baby girl, Riley Magnolia
Robinson. With a brief stint in Northern Florida, they are proud to finally call Charleston, South Carolina home as of May 2013. They hope to soon build their dreamy, modern-barn house on the sleepy, oak tree-drippin’ island located right outside of Charleston that Jackie fondly grew up on, which is where their studio is located presently.
