About the Owner

Fernando Gonzalez

Fernando Gonzalez launched the company in 2009 after he purchased his first Vandercook proof press. His love of letterpress began with hand-setting wood and metal type to create posters and cards. Fernando has bachelors of art degree in graphic design from Boise State University. When he’s not at the shop, he’s home with his two children, Michael and Madeline.

About Our Name

We make big impressions

Elefant Press has a double meaning. It comes from both the weight of an elephant and its ability to make impressions and the resemblance of a Vandercook press to an elephant. Fernando has a special appreciation for elephants because they remind him of his grandmother who used to collect elephant figurines.
