About

Sharing Warm Aloha

My letterpress printing evolved from my interest in making artist books and from my paper making from cotton rag and various other plant materials. The letterpress prints I create are printed with an antique 1900s' Chandler Price Pilot press and a larger Chandler Price 8 x 12 printing press.

With letterpress printing, a printer may use the traditional method or use a base with photo polymer dies. With the traditional method, I fit the type and die cuts into a chase (metal frame) with wooden furniture, making sure that the type and dies are securely fitted into the chase. The ink is prepared and placed on the press ink plate. Test prints and adjustments are made as needed. This can be the most time consuming part of printing because of the many variables involved when printing with an antique press. Once adjustments have been made, the individual sheets of paper are hand fed onto the press and each card is printed one at a time.

Running my shop allows me to provide hands-on printing and attention to detail and gives me the opportunity to create. I have always loved working with my hands whether it is making paper, creating unique handmade books, or hand carving of images for prints. Focusing on letterpress printing also allows me to work with these marvelous antique printing presses that are works of art in themselves. Although more than a 100 years old, these antique printing presses work in unison and harmony to create a unique aesthetic effect and impression that you can see and touch, truly a delight for the senses!

Aloha Letterpress is the name of my shop because aloha has such special meaning. It can mean hello, good bye or love. “Alo “ means presence and “ha” means breath. Together, it can be translated as breath of life. In Hawaii, we try to “live aloha” and to share our aloha with others. I hope my work will help others to share their aloha with the special people in their lives.
Aloha and mahalo, Linda

Aloha! Welcome to my Aloha Letterpress shop on Etsy. My goal as a letterpress printer is to provide you with distinctive and unique stationery and cards that will help you to convey your thoughts to friends and family in a special way. I also want to help you with personalizing your stationery to meet your wishes.

I take pride in the work I do and I will strive to provide you with excellent and prompt service. I use two antique Chandler & Price presses and each item is individually hand printed one at a time with care and attention to detail. I use the finest of letterpress papers, Crane's Lettra . Lettra papers are plush white 100 percent cotton, tree free and beautiful to touch with a slight texture.
