Sesame Letterpress, Strawberry coasters and cards (2023). Letterpress printing on paper. 4 x 6 in.

We use antique, Victorian era cast iron presses to print fine stationery. Dating back to the 15th Century, letterpress printing is done by inking a plate with a raised surface of type and images and pressing this surface into a sheet of cotton paper, creating a tactile de-bossed impression. All of our work is done using this traditional style of printing. During Open Studios weekend, we'll be doing printing demonstrations and selling our stationery.
