Bred Press has a letterpress now! And two fonts! (ू ͒•‧̫•ू⑅ ͒)
Bred Press now has an embosser!
I’m pleased to announce the release of the first Bred Box!
Bred Box #1 is a printed suite of work by comics artists invited and published by Bred Press. Bred Box comes in an edition of 150, each packaged in a screenprinted envelope (cover illustration above) and numbered individually!
The inaugural release of Bred Box will have Abe Lampert, Alabaster, Andy Burkholder, Ben Marcus, Danielle Chenette, Inés Estrada, Michael Olivo, Natali Koromoto, and Nicole Ginelli with all new offset lithograph prints.
The official release party will be Saturday, July 19th at Spudnik Press Cooperative in Chicago (1821 W Hubbard Street Suite 302). If you can’t make it out, you can purchase Bred Box #1 at the Bred Press online store after the opening, or individual prints through each of the artists listed above. All proceeds from individual sales benefit the artists fully. All sales of the Bred Box directly help Bred Press publish more work!
Thanks so much. I love you.
I realized I never made a post about this! Here’s Booker, the official Bred Press mascot and logo! He’s a cutie. He loves you.
I absolutely love this Bred Press fanart by the talented Jamie Davida Lee!
I will be publishing her new 24 page comic “New Witch” next month! It’s going to be seriously good. The way she draws her characters is incredibly charming to me, I really love her work and I think you will too.
THERE IS NO LOVE FOR A LONELY SOUL!

Hi everyone! My name is Brad Rohloff, and I’m starting a publishing house here in Chicago called Bred Press!
Bred Press is an artist books, comics, and zine publishing house. I look to provide a platform by which to support domestic and international contemporary artists working within the medium of printed and published matter. I am interested primarily in comics work but will also be publishing photo books, prints, foldouts, and artist made non-traditional book formats. We have a store! It’s not much, but give it a month or two.
I am working publishing on an A.B. Dick 360 but by the fall will be printing full time on my own Toko 4750, as well as printing on a Saturn 3040 Autopress. This gives me full access to both offset lithography and high volume screenprinting capabilities. I like printing presses.
This summer I will be publishing several comics and print suites, which I am very excited about! Some of the artists on my Summer Roster include:
So, welcome. Like our Facebook page, join the mailing list, follow Bred Press, check out our online store, and look forward, with me, to the future! The terrifying, uncertain, bottomless void of the future.
