Our Story

Iron Curtain Press is a letterpress print shop staffed by the best team in Los Angeles. We produce our own line of greeting cards and office supplies under the Iron Curtain Press and Shorthand brands.

Our headquarters and store are at 5030 York Blvd in Los Angeles, California.  Visitors to the store-front Shorthand can shop the full line of products that we make on site along with a carefully chosen collection of office and desk products we love.

Founded by Rosanna and Joel Kvernmo in 2008, the print shop has grown from the humble beginnings of their backyard shed into a fully fledged print house and store; we couldn’t be more proud of what we do.
