About

I am a small but seriously dedicated letterpress studio in the business of creating delectably delicious letterpress cards and lino cut prints you cant wait to share with friends.
Here at Coco Press I believe life is too short to give boring cards so I am making it my personal mission to create cards with a little bit of fun and personality, no cards with kittens in boots around here!
I personally hand draw all my card and print designs, yes that includes my typographic cards, I don’t use any pre-designed fonts, I hand draw each letter and word myself. The next step is to fix my drawings up in Photoshop on my trusty Wacom, turning them into a PDF. I then send off to have a photopolymer plate of my illustration made, this is what I print from.

When they arrive, the real fun starts, mixing colours like a mad professor, I warm up my 120 year old 900kg Arab Platen Press and get ready to stamp my mark on the soft and fluffy 100% cotton paper I use for my cards. This paper gives maximum gratification, for both the customer and me, as it give a beautiful crisp impression and feels luxurious to the touch.
When the ink dries, the packing, sorting, product photography and marketing starts.
I am a one woman show managing and creating every aspect of my art, last year I made the decision to totally overhaul my card range, changing paper, card size, moving from one colour to two, my range is always growing and expanding in response to feedback I receive from customers, I would be over the moon if you spent some time browsing through my shop.
