Lovingly letterpressing on antique presses

It starts with me, Maca. After 20 years of being a graphic designer devoted to logos, webs and brochures… I discovered letterpress. Yeah! My life changed instantly. So many years of computer digital files now turned into stained hands and dirty clothes…! I've never been so happy though, and it's all due to rediscovering what Gutenberg began almost 600 years ago… pretty amazing, right?

With my husband's help I got my first press… he found her. "Bonita", as my daughter called her, a 1809 Chandler & Price platen press who has been standing alone on a garage for several years… Poor thing!

She began printing from day one… at first I though she was kind of an alien with all her strange iron arms… but I really got her personality instantly. She was a keeper! We bonded so fast… we started producing at first some awkward pieces until we began to team up… and then our first serious job order arrived (thanks Ben from Australia!) and we totally nailed it.

Two years later we found "Bing" (in honor of Chandler Bing from Friends, as she is a Chandler & Price as well). Bing was in pretty bad shape so she was in desperate need for make up and tuning. Once she arrived she looked as brand new.

Since then we are producing stationary pieces that you can feel, touch, sense the relief, shape, depth ... A heavy paper, textured, with cotton moisture and odor… Rich, thick, hand-made… Letterpress is new and old at the same time, is the revival of the traditional boosted with modern design.

I truly love letterpress and hope you'll love it too...
