With the aim of producing beautiful stationery at an affordable price, Little Red Press came into being towards the end of 2010 with the acquisition of my vintage (red) Adana press. A self taught designer/printer, working from my home studio, I individually handprint a range of letterpress goods that include cards, note cards, invitations, gift tags and canvas bags.
Characterful and Instantly recognisable, the traditional craft of letterpress printing involves pressing paper onto wooden or metal type. This can leave just a 'kiss' impression, where there is no indentation into the paper, or a deeper impression which can be seen and felt. I use only top quality, heavyweight board that will allow the tactile nature of the letterpress printing to shine through. Each separate print will be subtly different from the last and is, therefore, a unique product.
