notebooks, posters and type


Before standardised paper sizing in the 1950s paper was named and cut more commonly by the conventions of British imperial paper sizes.  The sizing names although, arguably difficult to remember were much more interesting, unusual names like Grand Eagle, Emperor, Crown and Double Elephant! In 2009 we made the jump from a small but brilliant table top Adana to a galley press and Pinched Post was the new and exciting larger print size. Since then our galley press has left our little print shop and been replaces with a precission proofing press,  other hand fed presses have joined us and our collection of wood and metal type continues to grow to suit our needs.

What we do…

We use traditional craft skills like letterpress, wood engravings, wood cuts and hand lettering and combine them with more modern design practices and printing processes.
