A handprinted letterpress card in a half moon shape with bold, illustrative eye with pink eyeliner printed on both sides. These hand printed letterpress cards are printed and die-cut on a vintage treadle printing press (restored from c.1900) using 270gsm card that is made sustainably in Great Britain. Each comes with a 'Japanese style' string and washer envelope that can be re-used, making a useful addition to the card. Each card if hand fed through the press five times for the different colours front and back along with the die-cut shape.
With letterpress printing, each print involves composing the design into a metal chase, known as a form, which is locked into the bed of the press ready to be inked. The form is pressed against the paper, creating a beautiful impression and tactile finish.

Hello, I'm Catherine, a designer and printmaker with a love of colour and illustration. After travelling in 2009, I fell in love with the range of letterpress prints I found around the world and soon got to teaching myself the traditional printing process when I returned to the UK. Today, my collection of printing presses, inks and wooden type has grown and I now create a range of paper goods focused on simple colour illustrations and the idea of having fun with paper.
