Igloo is a magnet for creatives, creators, and crafters. We have collected roomfuls of precious equipment built to bring ideas to life and put hands to work, and that is our goal for each person who walks through our doors. We spark creativity with machines, type, and illustrations that are steeped in history, and welcome all to come and be inspired in our printing and bookbinding studio, classroom, and retail shop.
As a modern letterpress printer, we thrive on pushing the envelope and experimenting with the best of digital and analog techniques in our custom printing projects. We love the process of printing and bookbinding, and promise to bring you along in creating work of the highest quality. We are playful and precise, and we aim to make the journey from your computer les to a touchable product instructional, compelling, and fun.

Nicki Crock Production Manager Nicki came to intern at Igloo while she was finishing up her masters degree at CCAD. She quickly learned that she had fallen into a group of like-minded obsessive-compulsive makers, and once you're part of that kind of gang, it’s really hard to leave. Blood in, blood out. Since graduating she’s taken on the Production Manager position at Igloo and enjoys sharing her perfectionist powers with everyone that walks in the door.
Nic Skowron Production Artist Nick comes from a background in printmaking. Being trained as a printmaker is a great advantage working at Igloo, as attention to detail and process-based thinking comes in handy in every aspect of his job as Production Artist.
Rachel Dangerfield Graphic Designer Like a barnacle to a ship, Rachel is the intern that Igloo just couldn't shake. Nearly a decade later, she works with Igloo as an in-house designer, helping to bring ideas to life. Rachel moonlights as a fancy business woman at her design studio, Imaginary Beast.
Lani Heilman Type Angel She called herself a Printer's Devil until she was christened the Type Angel. She has taken on the task of organizing and cataloguing every piece of type at Igloo. And, yes, she actually volunteered for this daunting task! Fun fact: Lani comes from a long line of people involved in the printing profession. One ancestor was Johannes Gutenberg's partner in Strasbourg. He continued printing in Strasbourg after Gutenberg returned to Mainz.
