Letterpress cards in the UK

I love letterpress cards! When I first started this business, over 10 years ago, letterpress cards were a big thing in the US, but the trend hadn't yet made it over to the UK. I wanted to stock these beautiful, tactile cards and at first I stocked lots of independent brands from US designers.

Now I stock Egg Press and Rifle Paper Co letterpress cards, both of which are still US brands, but are printed in the UK on a 1962 Heidelberg Windmill Platen press. 

What is letterpress printing?

Letterpress printing is a method of relief printing. Using a printing press, usually vintage presses due to the hand-printed and old-fashioned nature of the process, a raised design creates an impression on soft cotton paper. The cards are usually high-quality due to the premium quality of the paper required, with the added care of independent designers who still love this hand-printed method.
