With roots in the 15th Century letterpress printing is the deceivingly simple process of pressure + ink + paper. With the modern combination of polymer plates and equipment from as far back as the 1920’s our hand printed pieces have the tactile quality that makes letterpress a technique impossible to replicate. With an eye for detail and an obsession with our craft, our hand printed work is a beautiful way to make a lasting first impression, announce a wedding, or up your packaging game.
LETTERPRESS PROCESS | We start with your digital files, which we use to create photopolymer printing plates for every colour of the project. After hand mixing and matching the Pantones it’s on to the press, and with finesse and a meticulous eye we get things looking crisp.
The love is in the labour - we suggest a minimum of 100 pieces for business cards and 50 for other projects.
From teeny tiny to large format - our maximum print size is 13 x 19”.
No foil here baby. We get asked this a lot, but with our current studio set up we don’t offer hot foil services.
Finishing: we love a cheeky edge painting, and anything else your project needs like, scoring, folding, diecutting etc.
DESIGN SERVICES | Our in-house design services offer you the unique perspective of a design and letterpress brain combined. From branding to packaging design, we want to help you put your best print foot forward. Understanding the nuances of letterpress helps us create something truly unique. We’ll always start with a meeting in the studio where you’ll get to feel the pillowy letterpress goodness and plan your project together.
