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!

When Tommy Nagle first approached us about Film Directors #1 we threatened to send evil pigeons with bad guts to fly over his house if he didn’t let us print this”. He agreed.

The detail of every single delicate beard hair (and glasses) on Tommy’s original artwork have transferred faithfully under the extreme pressure of the press. Featuring (from top left) Francis Ford Coppola, Tim Burton, John Landis, George Lucas, George A Romero, Steven Spielberg, Spike Lee, Peter Jackson and Hayao Miyazaki.

“I’m always making things and never quite finishing them, so I was happily shocked when Blush agreed to turn my idea into a tangible thing.” Explains Tommy. “I hadn’t really made anything like this before, aside from some etching experiments at art school, but I’d seen Blush’s work on various blogs and knew that if I were to ever make a ‘proper’ print, I’d want it to be letterpress, and I’d want Blush to print it.”

The prints are A3 (297 x 420mm) 300gsm Somerset cotton and are available to buy from Tommy’s shop. Profits go toward the Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.

Fans of Spider-Man will love this cheeky play on the iconic masked hero and the man behind this superhero’s mask is illustrator Olly Moss.

We ran the prints simultaneously on two Heidelberg cylinders, first printing the red plate then then transferring the sheets onto the second press to print the black plate. Registration was surprisingly tight as there was no trapping between the red and black plates. Printing the black over the red helped to create a rich black.

The prints are 11″ x 14″ and printed onto 300gsm 100% cotton paper.

It’s not surprising that the prints are already sold out!

We love this 2 colour wedding invitation for designer Elliot Jay Stocks and his bride to be Samantha. Printed 2 colours both sides on a hefty 1000mic recycled board and finished with die cut corners. The recycled board is rough and uneven varying the impression across the print area adding texture and random imperfections, making each print different from the next.

Designed by Elliot Jay Stocks.

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.

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.
