Long Island Services
43 W. Main St., Oyster Bay
Just outside New York City, in the lovely area of Oyster Bay, you’ll find the Printery headquarters. The location is in the town’s charming old clapboard newspaper building. But the setting isn’t for show: All the vintage printing presses are, miraculously, still in use. Invitations, save-the-dates, announcement cards—you name it—are all handmade and engraved on the printing presses using rich stock. The company is available for private consultation appointments in the city on Wednesdays at locations chosen by the client—your home, the office, a local café, it’s up to you.
