Meet the Team
Founder & CEO
As a 4th generation printer, the draw to continue the family tradition was strong. Continuing on the path of his father, aunts, uncles, and grandparents before him, David joined Able Printing in 2005 after working as a graphic designer in an ad agency. A lover (and fighter) of art and design, David knew creative printing with letterpress machines, as well as offset and digital presses, would be the future of Able. David’s vision became a reality when he assembled a team of passionate designers and print artisans, launching Able Invitations & Stationery. David enjoys being outdoors on the water and spending time with his wife and their children, Teddy and Maisie.
Graduating from Florida State University in 2004 and beginning her career in finance, Karen returned to school to pursue an art degree. Initially focusing on brand strategy and design, a move to NYC with her husband expanded her love for all things paper and letterpress. After returning to Florida with the best New York souvenir of all, her daughter Adeline, Karen knew she wanted to refocus her design career in the stationery industry. Having previously printed with Able, and admiring their work and passion for the printed piece, the opportunity to design in-house and help launch Able Invitations & Stationery was a perfect fit.

Journeyman Letterpress Operator
A skilled “journeyman,” Tom has successfully completed official apprenticeships in both letterpress and offset printing. Tom ran his first press, a new Heidelberg Windmill, in 1970 at Broad Ripple High School. Following graduation, Tom went to work for Herff Jones Fine Papers Division running their windmills. He continued this for 5 years before pursuing a career in offset printing. Even as new methods started gaining traction, people’s love for the Heidelberg Windmill stayed strong and it kept finding a way to be used in the printing community. Now in the latter part of his career, Tom has reunited with his first love of letterpress printing on these awesome machines.
Offset Press Operator
Carl has lifelong experience with printing and letterpress and remembers the day when “they taught it in middle school.” Carl has run presses big and small and is our lead pressman for offset printing. An efficient operator, Carl has a huge appreciation for the printing craft and its connection to great design. If he’s not working, catch him hanging out with his family or out fishing.
