2015 letterpress Christmas card exchange

I'm a little late posting but hey better late than never! This years Letterpress Christmas card exchange went international and doubled in size. No matter how hard I try to be organised I'm always on the last minute but I still like to design and print something using wood or metal type. So thanks to retired printer Ian's kind donation of a box full of manicules this was my contribution to this years exchange.
Armina has done a fantastic job photographing all the cards from all over the world which you can view here. Never ceases to amaze me every year all the ideas! Happy printing folks x

Love letters straight from your heart

It started not with a kiss but with a Fa La La La... One of my not so bright ideas for the letterpress Christmas card exchange in 2013, looked great but was a nightmare stringing all those individual letters and then trying to get it to go in a envelope! But feedback was great with people saying they would keep it and get it out next year. So I went back to the drawing board to come up with a better idea to package and develop my idea. First the name, LoveLetters, mainly because I was using my new favourite wood letters, a nice fat Bodoni condensed which happens to be one of my most loved fonts and it was also nearly Valentines Day! Next came the personalised monogram card, perfect for your valentine, engagement, anniversary or weddings. Then one for MUM (or MOM) for Mothers Day. Posting HUGS also proved very popular not just for Mothers & Fathers Day but it so nice just to send a hug to someone and they can hang it in their favourite spot. I've done CUDDLE and even MARRY ME? several times! Never did find out if they all said yes ;)
A letterpress box envelope, tissue paper and a tag add the finishing touches to a cute little card that the recipient can treasure.

a chip off the old block

If you follow me on instagram, facebook or twitter you'll have seen the process of my new Tuscan Blocks. I’ve had an old book of alphabets for years and loved the page on Decorative Tuscan so months of redrawing it on thew mac, leaving it to one side for a while, I finally got round to finishing the whole alphabet plus added an ampersand. I wanted to do something a little different than printing and work with another small business, so I enlisted the help of Mark at Laser Wood Type.
Letterpress cotton bags so ready for gifting and to launch the blocks who can't resist a letterpress pun!
Watch this space for more Tuscan delights!
