Tiger and Fox

STamford, Lincolnshire

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.

The story behind the business
Meet Tiger and Fox

My letterpress studio, based in Lincolnshire, is inspired by my two young “wild and fun” daughters (who the studio is named after). I create a range of notecard designs, bold greeting cards, and playful paper crafts focused on simple colour illustrations and the idea of having fun with paper.

Using the traditional craft of letterpress, I hand print each design – one by one – using a lovingly restored Arab Crown Folio from c.1900. Each card is created carefully, by hand, including individually folding each card, adding die-cuts and packaging. I love to have fun and experiment with ink colours and coloured card. I hope to inspire imaginative play (for young and old) and also look to explore how paper crafts can help with learning through play.

I pick specialist paper suppliers, and sustainably made paper – printing in small batches to avoid waste.
