Meet the Artist & Designer

Sarah Cassani is professional designer with a fine arts degree from the Rhode Island School of Design, and nearly 20 years of graphic design experience. After many years working digitally, Sarah discovered letterpress printing and was intrigued by its beautiful, tactile qualities. She bought a small vintage press on ebay, and taught herself how to use it, printing stationery for family and friends. Sarah enjoyed this work so much that in 2019, she began offering her letterpress goods for sale. Today at her small design studio, Affetto Press, Sarah’s focus is on producing beautiful bespoke letterpress stationery using antique equipment and processes, and creating design solutions with a clean, modern aesthetic.


At Affetto Press, everything produced is fully customizable, printed by hand and meant to share. Sarah strives to create unique and beautiful, handmade goods, which she believes are a special treat for the recipient. Read more about the studio and process.
