Letterpress pillow boxes and wrap around for the lovely Emma at Notes Jewellery.
Printed letterpress on a off white board with a distinctive tactile feel and fibrous inclusions to give organic appearance and feel. I love the personalised tree pendants! To see more of Emma’s unique jewellery visit www.notesjewellery.co.uk

My first fair this year at Churchfield House Great Harwood. Lots of lovely makers and looking forward to meeting new friends!
More information about who'll be selling at the event via the facebook event page
Hope to see you there! x
I've been doing a little volunteer design work behind the scenes at Churchfield House, an historic building left to the people of Great Harwood. An army of volunteers (including my parents) formed the Churchfield Trust and are working extremely hard to bring this building into the 21st century and to keep the legacy for future generations. You can read all about the history via the website and a recent article in Lancashire Life magazine where my dad gets a little mention in the “Jack's job list”. Darn it that's my ‘Dad’s to do list‘ put on the back burner for a while! What would you do without your dad eh!
I love Historic buildings and have seen too many during my 48 years fall into decay and feel its so important that the next generation gets stuck in to help in any way they can. With so many people feeling the squeeze during the recession Churchfield House we feel is the perfect venue for a small wedding or function, the rooms are beauiful and there's such a welcoming ambiance that makes you feel so at home. Vintage weddings are so on trend so perfect for the DIY bride too, Downton Abbey on a small scale I'd say. Who wouldn't like to feel like Lady Mary for a day!
I've been working on the branding and given the logo a more contemporary look, signs and leaflets are being printed so things are coming together. I've some some internal signage to do which will be done letterpress so will be glad to use my new wood type. Plus something for the World War I exhibition which will be lovely to do!

I'm getting more and more orders for film packaging these days, I printed these double felt white sleeves and flat note cards for Hazel at Heartfelt Productions. who packaged everything in a film can and tied with branded ribbon.
Bespoke printed ribbon and stickers are a great way to enhance packaging and carry your brand all the way through your packaging. I love how all my lovely customers add their own personal touch to the CD or DVD sleeves I print, and I'm pretty sure the happy couple love them too!

New logo and letterpress packaging

Melanie, a local photographer, visited the studio to discuss a new logo and packaging. She felt her old logo was too masculine and wanted something softer (you can see the old logo on the black sticker in the box). I gave her logo a much softer look without being too girlie. Letterpress branded kraft CD sleeves and tags all printed in warm grey complete the look. Just shows with a little thought you can get the professional look for your packaging without a huge budget. Thanks Mel for the fabulous pics and supporting local business!
More lovely pics of the finished look on Melanie's Facebook Page.
