Hello! Welcome to the website of Happy Penguin Press. We make letterpress greeting cards, invitations, and more by hand on our antique printing press.


About Happy Penguin Press


Happy Penguin Press is a husband-and-wife-run letterpress company based in Birmingham, Alabama. We began years ago as a fun hobby, and now create handmade greeting cards, wedding invitations, baby announcements, and lots more on on our 1884 printing press named Ceci. Want to learn more?

Being Green

Happy Penguin uses recycled and 100% cotton paper and rubber-based inks. Our pieces are printed one at a time, by hand. All of the scraps from the printing process are recycled so that nothing goes to waste. Once printing is complete, our cards are packaged in biodegradable sleeves.
