Who We Are…


Letterpress Design has been built on over 25 years of traditional letterpress  experience. We are a small band of print nuts and now include 2 generations of the same family in our ultimate goal of getting ink on paper, in any way possible but mainly letterpress. It is by using this experience we are aiming to tailor bespoke print methods to each individual client based on their own merits.  Letterpress Design aims to focus on traditional print methods and more contemporary methods for wedding, personal and social stationery.

We can offer several services from the design stage right through to the finished product. We offer letterpress printing, foiling, thermography, die cutting, laser cutting and edge painting to name a few.

Lisa and Ross have grown from a small company with focused skills to help promote letterpress printing and its associated services to a wider audience.  We also have a sister company, Lyme Bay Press, who aims to support the letterpress community with the supply of photopolymer printing plates, inks and other printing items.

Over the years we have added to our collection of presses and now boast 3 heidelberg platens, 2 15×10’s and 18×13, a Chandler & Price, a Jardine, a Farley flatbed proofing press, a Marshall DUT hotfoil machine and several Adanas. I’m sure that we have a press that will suit your needs.

“Where is the real beauty in environmentally unfriendly, mass produced stationary that you can get anywhere? We have lost the quality within our modern culture and are producing nothing remarkable. In setting up Letterpress Design we are hoping to fill the gap that is being left by mass production and aim to provide beautiful, individual stationery products”.
