Letterpress printed Stationery
« on: November 24, 2011, 01:42:24 pm »
In an effort to keep letterpress skills alive and kicking in this age of digital print, I've just started to produce packs of A6 (single sided) Correspondence cards and envelopes.

The cards are individually printed by me on my vintage Heidelberg platen press, using original blocks/designs from the 1920's - 50's onto 300gsm 100% cotton board.  At present most of the designs are 'smallholding' based. Supplied in packs of 25, these come packed in a box - 15 + p&p @ 2.50 (within UK)
or packs of 10 packaged in cellophane bags - 7 including p&p

My new facebook page has further details and photos.

We had a box full of old print blocks for ages OH was going to make a table top from them under a glass cover - again one of those things that never got done - mostly waverly pen advertising, very interesting to look at and not sure where they are now - don't remember anything sheep or goat related - there was an elephant!!

Well done, you!  My cousin's first husband had a printing business - when I had a small business with my Mum (book-keeping) he did all our business cards, letterheads etc.  I personally just do my own digitally now, but I must admit if you found a dog resembling a Brittany I might be tempted to have covers for my pedigrees!
