I Love Letterpress

I wanted to share my little purchases from Shelf/Life with you as promised here. I love letterpress! Letterpress is an relief printing method using heavy machine presses that date back to the 15th century.

I am always looking for special thank you notes and I couldn't resist this set of 6 from Hello Ducky (I bought 2 sets).

My other letterpress find was this desk notebook from bluepoolroad. I give it extra bonus points for the fact that it is printed on 100% cotton, tree-free (love saying that) paper.

The two letterpress companies mentioned above are American but you can also find some great letterpress products from Australian designers such as Brisbane-based Bespoke Press and Vince Letterpress in Melbourne. They both specialise in wedding invitations.

Oh all so lovely. You'll have the anti cotton farmers saying 'cotton uses up way too much water' which flies in the face of my entire business of course. You can't win them all. Beautiful prints love letter press, it's stunning. Love Posie
