Our products are inspired by the collection of vintage blocks in our studio, relics of the time when all printing was done this way. The patina on our blocks gives the print texture making each print unique.
Letterpress printing was invented by Gutenberg in 1440 and is still being used today. Letterpress printing has undergone a fantastic revival in the US and is now gathering pace here in the UK.
After the blocks are assembled in a chase, the layout is proofed, inks mixed for each run and then the printing begins. The ink is applied by hand roller to the blocks for every print before it is pressed.
