There is a catalogue to browse or orders can be processed online. The product range is extremely varied and includes personalized items, such as plaques, photo frames and communion medallions. The company is owned by the Benedictine monks of the Saint Meinrad Archabbey community in Indiana, which is also the location of a well respected theology school.
Crafted figurines are very popular choices, in addition to pieces of jewelry such as bracelets and necklaces, ornaments and other home décor products and depictions of angels and saints. Chimes are also available. Crosses come in various forms, as nativity scenes, in Celtic design or for confirmation. They are made from silver, wood or copper. The Abbey Press angels are incorporated in figurines or as other types of ornament.
