About

Welcome to Paper Elephant letterpress boutique!

In our quaint little mountain cottage, we are joined by our trusty equipment: Nellie, an original 1963 Heidelberg Windmill Platen Press, our letterpress workhorse (or elephant). In layman’s terms she is one huge hunk of cast iron. Nellie is a trooper, she keeps the ink flowing and delicately feeds the paper through. But like any girl, she has her ‘bad-hair’ days when she just needs that little extra love and attention (ie. more oil, a few tweaks and a good rub). Rusty, our faithful C&P guillotine, keeps Nellie company. He’s old and grumpy but super sharp (so we keep our fingers to ourselves).
