ABOUT US

A home of alchemy and creativity. 

In an unassuming industrial estate, behind a shutter door, lives Britain's largest dedicated letterpress printing studio. Four expert craftsman, six vintage machines and a combined experience of far too many years, we are proud to create. beautiful products for some of Britain's leading gift companies. 

So what is all the fuss about: what sets letterpress apart? 

 Letterpress printing uses a press that inks the image then ‘stamps’ the paper. The process has changed little since the Gutenberg bible was published in 1455. These days a few of the manual processes have been replaced by engineering advances​, but it is still guidedthrough under the watchful eye of a master printer. The end result is a product with a unique texture and an unrivalled finish.
