Lady Pilot Letterpress

Wilmington, North Carolina


Lady Pilot Letterpress is a one-woman shop operating on the edge of the Southern United States. Owner and printer, Emily Wismer makes her line of sometimes sweet and often sarcastic cards on a 1907 C&P. Inspired by early 20th century design, old movies, dirty jokes, and the smell of ink, Lady Pilot strives to create beautiful old-world printing with a new-world sensibility.
