Linocut Baubles

It feels very weird to be thinking about Christmas in February – but these are the linocut cards I made this year. It’s become a bit of a tradition now, and I can only assume that this year I was hungry when I designed them – don’t they look like Tunnocks Tea Cakes?!

Recent Adventures in Print

I last posted about our printing in January, so it’s definitely time for an update! Today I spent a couple of hours printing 78 paper bags for my best friend’s wedding next weekend (there’s going to be an old-fashioned sweet cart, I’m so excited).

I also used the press to make a little leaving present for another friend who’s about to go off travelling the world. It had to be small and light so she could take it with her – so I printed the front and back covers of an A6 notebook.

There’s also these thank you cards, which I actually had nothing to do with in terms of production, but I quite like the photos I took of them, so let’s sneak them on here too.

Hello! (The Print Pack)

Late last year, myself and 2 friends (entirely accidentally) attended a small letterpress workshop. We’d all had previous experience of printmaking, but never letterpress. We enjoyed it so much that we went home and bought an old machine for ourselves (thank you, Gumtree!)

It came with about 6 typefaces, and over the next few weeks we added a couple more to the collection. Unfortunately due to our busy lives, and the fact that one of us lives in a different county, we haven’t been able to use it as much as we initially hoped. However, we’ve produced a few things which we’ve sold under the group name The Print Pack, and we continue to have fun in our little shed studio.

These hello cards are up for sale now on our Etsy (we also have Instagram)
