LITTLE SHOP OF LETTERING
Her line of letterpress goods aims to be pretty and real at the same time. It is inspired by the people around her, things people say, overhearing conversations and people watching - especially quirky and awkward moments. As a designer, her love for letterpress is a big one and a process she has appreciated for many years. The beauty of the antique machine, the lush cotton paper, the smell of the ink, and the luxurious paper impressions created - yum!
Letterpress printing is a labour of love. It is a slow process, printing each piece by hand, one at a time. However, the result of a beautiful impression created on a lush cotton paper, is definitely worth it. Order a card and check it out for yourself. Or stop by the studio, she’d love to introduce you to the mighty Bob - her 66 year old press.
More lettered ideas are always coming to life. Check back to the Little Shop of Lettering for new updates!
