Description

Know a little someone who loves their hats? Send this hand printed letterpress card as an alternative greeting card. A bold statement card for any little friend who likes to keep cosy. Each card is hand letterpress printed then die cut and creased to create the pop-up hat that flips up when standing. Each card is hand fed through my treadle printing press (restored from c.1900) four times – for both the yellow and black ink and then the two die-cuts. The little 'yellow hat friend' is created from 350gsm card that is made sustainably in Great Britain and comes with a 'Japanese style' string and washer envelope that can be re-used, making a useful addition to the card.

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.
