We were thrilled to be working once again with Jock. This time he has teamed up with Vice Press to produce this awesome limited edition set of Judge Dredd letterpress prints.

The set consists of five 8″ x 8″ pieces with a sixth print randomly inserted in a limited amount of sets. Printed on 300gsm cotton paper and presented in a custom made folder.

The printing presses of choice for this job were our Heidelberg cylinders. These presses provide excellent ink coverage while keeping the ink consistent through the entire run. They ensure the very best letterpress prints possible and retain the finest details from Jock’s original drawings.

If you’re quick you might be able to still order one from Vice Press!

Hannah & Al – Save the Date

We had the pleasure of working alongside talented designer Alex Farrall to create these great wedding invitations.

Alex came to us with his artwork and the idea of working on a recycled craft stock, after some consideration we advised that this particular stock may be problematic when printing due to the nature of the artwork (with fine vector illustrations in such a large print area). We explored some more options and Alex settled on a much better alternative. Though we always give customers the freedom to have their prints as they like, we strive to give the best possible advice and options to create an absolute premium quality print on every job.

White foil to a Gmund bier Ale, quadplexed to a 1000gsm weight for a nice weighty feel. You have to love the customization options of GF Smith paper stocks!

Business Cards for The Eighty-Eight. A publication curated by Jamie Cullum. Black ink one side on a 540gsm Colorplan Pale grey, with a vibrant neon green edge paint.

In Jamie’s words; “The magazine isn’t about me necessarily, but about things that I’m interested in. I’m really interested in journalism and writing, and I know so many writers, so I thought I could have a go and get some friends involved. Sophie’s a writer, my best friend is a playwright, another runs an amazing burger blog and others interested in short stories. Not many people know that I did English literature and typography, so I got to indulge my passion for fonts and design.”

Volume 2 on sale September 1st!

Paper Passionist

Paper PassionistPaper PassionistPaper PassionistDebbie is passionate about paper, really passionate. With her background in the paper industry she knows a thing or two about paper. We got a call from Debbie while she was over in New York for the Stationery Show, “Can you print my business cards for when I return in a couple of days for PG Live in London?” How could we resist! The paper was chosen, the type set and colours picked in no time and the next day it was on the press.

The cards are printed with coral ink and finished off with matching edge colour. There was only one paper choice for a paper passionist – the awesome 600gsm Cranes Lettra Flourescent White.

No Thank You

No Thank You letterpress business cardSøren Ragsdale came to us to create and print this simple card.

Here’s Søren’s brief:
I’d like to order a set of business cards that just say “No Thank You” in a clean, serifed script. I’ve just moved to London where there are a ton of people trying to hand me flyers. I’d like to have something to hand back to them.

I wonder if the people who receive them keep them or just throw them away? Either way, what a great idea!

Letterpress printed black 1/0 on Cranes Crest 365gsm, 100% cotton. Dimensions: 85 x 55mm.

How small can you go?

Small typeWe are often asked what’s the smallest point size letterpress can print. Well hopefully this will give you a good idea of how small we can go.

1 Colour Business Cards

1 colour business card1 colour business card1 colour business card1 colour business cardJohn Henry called on blush°° to print his business cards. We discussed which papers would be most suitable as he wanted a really deep impression. After seeing John’s artwork we recommended Saunders 425gsm. A beautiful soft white cotton paper heavier than the average business card but not too thick to take up too much room in his wallet!

Getting the right amount of ink was critical for this design. We had to have enough coverage for the block at the top of the card without over inking the finer typography at the bottom.

Dimensions: 55 x 85mm
Letterpress printed on our vintage printing presses.

This card has been featured on Card Observer and was also Card of the Month for June on CardNerd – thanks!
