Meet the ACEER >> Lindsay Schmittle
ACEER Artist in Residence
ACEER Member since: 2022
"Inspired by her quiet time adventuring in the woods, Lindsay creates colorful, modern and sustainable letterpress printed artworks & products with vintage type and hand-carved wood blocks. Her letterpress creations aim to inspire mindful connections with the natural world, our communities, and our minds & bodies. Also inspired by the historical power of the printing press to encourage social change, Lindsay aims to create a positive impact with every printed piece through her visual storytelling, bold wood type statements and raw materials used. Each Gingerly Press product is printed on 100% recycled paper and plants a native tree through a Small Business Partnership with the National Forest Foundation."
Gingerly Press is the printmaking studio practice of letterpress artist, Lindsay Schmittle. Lindsay discovered her love for old-school letterpress printing as a visual communications major at the University of Delaware. Jaded by the copious screen time and dull printing results of the digital design world, Lindsay found her sweet spot in the letterpress studio, at the intersection of design, illustration and hands-on craft.
After honing her skills at various print shops post-graduation, Lindsay began her own venture under the name of Gingerly Press. She relocated across the state of Pennsylvania to expand her studio practice in Pittsburgh in August 2019.
