The whole key to life is knowing where to go for help.
THE FIRST STEP
“The Journey of a Thousand Miles
Begins with a Single Step”
We know how hard that first step is and what courage it takes. The first step may be simply calling the Hotline to review your situation with a supportive listener.

MEET THE FOLKS THAT DESIGNED AND DONATED OUR LOGO
justAjar Design + Press is the mighty tandem-team of Sara Alway & Bobby Rosenstock. After criss-crossing the country from New York to Portland to Philadelphia, their love for vintage type and beautiful landscapes have now landed them in Southeastern Ohio, where they are busy designing, printing, working on their home and collecting old type from local antique shops. Sara teaches graphic design at Marietta College while Bobby runs the letterpress shop in Marietta.
Here at justAjar we can do just about anything. We are all about preserving and sharing the traditional crafts of hand-setting type and carving wood. All of our work is very labor intensive and of the highest quality. If you are interested in learning more about what we do send us an email, or even better come and visit!
