About Us

Life Is Funny Press is a letterpress shop in
Santa Monica, California run by Adam Smith,
a self-described modesty expert and all around
champion of life. Moving to Los Angeles at the age of 23,
Adam had strict career requirements in that a job was within
biking distance from his apartment *and* had air
conditioning.  After bumming around a few different local
coolspots, Adam began printing (and fell in love with)
letterpress in 2006.  In 2009, armed with a Sharpie and a
dream, he felt the itch to start writing and printing his own
style of letterpress greeting cards.  Leaving his air
conditioned job to pursue a warmer Life Is Funny Press
lifestyle full-time in 2013, Adam’s champion caliber wit +
charm can be witnessed in stores throughout the U.S. and beyond! 

All cards are designed, printed and shipped from santa monica, ca.
