Jane Goodrich and James Van Pernis partnered up with their talents to start Saturn Press Printing company. First setting up in Jane's garage they later designed and constructed a larger shop to move into. Saturn Press is located on Swan's Island a remote island located six miles from Bass Harbor Maine. Isolated from the world but not stopped from progress, Jane and James have crafted a line of greeting cards that uses orginally designed artwork published anywhere from 1870 and 1930. They print one color at a time with a letterpress, a method of pressing paper between two metal plates with pressure.
They do not have a website but you can find their greeting cards at Cronin & Company under Saturn Press. For more information on Saturn Press or request a catalog contact: Saturn Press, 463 Atlantic Road, PO Box 368, Swan's Island ME 04685. Phone: 207-526-4000
