What We Do and How We Do It
The real question is what don’t we do. If it can be printed we can be printed we can probably print it, in letterpress of course. As well as offering out letterpress and design services, we can produce foil blocking, thermography, die cutting, edge painting, bronzing and even digital.
We design and create wedding stationery, not just the invites and RSVP but the table settings and the order of service and if you’d like us to create you some bespoke bunting, we can do that to.
Weddings keep us busy. We like to think that we work with our Brides and Grooms to help make their day as special as it possibly could be. Starting by letting family and friends know that there is going to be a wedding to start with.
From ‘Save the Dates’ all the way to table settings and coasters, we can help design and produce all of the ‘Paperware’ you could possibly need.
Letterpress gives the feeling of quality. The feel of beautiful paper, to the feel of the impression left by the type itself.

Letterpress Design not only offer letterpress stationery but we can also offer Foil printing and Thermography.
How We Do It…
After working in Letterpress for several years we have plenty of experience in other finishing and printing types, to give you more of an idea, here are some details;
Letterpress printing is a technique of relief printing using a printing press. A worker composes and locks movable type into the bed of a press, inks it, and presses paper against it to transfer the ink from the type.
Hot foiling is a dry printing method in which a heated die and foil are used to apply graphics to a surface.
Thermography is also the name of a post print process that is achieved today using traditional printing methods coupled with thermography machines. Once an item has been printed using the letterpress method, a fine powder is applied to the print which is in turn heated giving a raised appearance similar but not the same as engraving.
Die cutting is a system when a shaped cutting die is inserted in the press, once the rollers are removed, the press is then run and the die will proceed to cut the shape of the die from the material fed through.
