Press 65 is a husband and wife design and letterpress team.
We provide custom design for wedding invitations, calling cards, and announcements; and we print them by hand on a Vandercook letterpress.
We love putting our thinking caps on and creating designs that speak to the hearts and eyes of our clients. When you are purchasing a design - whether it's for your business, your baby shower, or your wedding - you should be able to trust that your designers will do their best to work with your vision in order to create something that's uniquely yours.
Paola Horevicz Hurtado, was born in Curitiba, Parana in the south of Brazil. After age seven, she and her family moved to the United States, where they have lived in several parts of California. After high school, Paola moved back to the Bay Area to study Fine Art at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
With a concentration in Printmaking, she specializes in letterpress, woodcut, and book arts. Her work combines fine printmaking techniques with skills in bookbinding and boxmaking to create hand-made artists' books. With the addition of papermaking into her skill set, Paola has been able to create mixed media artists' books which incorporate three-dimensional paper sculptures. For her individual prints, Paola takes inspiration from significant people in her life in order to produce captivating portraits.
Her work in both Printmaking and Book Arts has been exhibited in several group shows in both nationally and internationally.
Most recently, she and husband Marlon have founded Press 65, under which she will continue to produce limited edition artists' books.
Born and raised in San Francisco, Marlon has had his paintings sold in Bay Area shows since his mid-teens. However, he enjoys spontaneous drawings much more than perpetual brush strokes.
Because he has always had an imaginative eye with an able hand that can keep up, Marlon likes to think of himself as the head of the Press 65 Creative Department.
Marlon also works as a photographer. While he enjoys the instant gratification of digital photography, the anticipation of waiting for film to be developed is worth the beauty that comes in the grain of film. Under MH6 Photography, Marlon enjoys everything from portraiture to experimenting with multiple exposure on cross-processed film.
