PRINT FOR LOVE OF WOOD
In 2009 after 26 years working in advertising I was lured by the smell of ink and wood type and set up a small studio dedicated to the love of letterpress, wood type and tree hugging paper.
A nine hour round trip from Lancashire to Fife in Scotland, to buy the first press of many, was the start of a journey that fate would take a hold of and create a dream.
Many friends have been met along the path but one in particular became a life long friend and mentor during her journey. John, a retired letterpress compositor and printer, passed on all his knowledge and shared his wonderful world of letterpress printing. The passion for using old skills grew stronger and soon it was time to move on and create a world of her own fuelled by the smell of freshly printed letterpress ink.
Print for Love of Wood was born and began to grow.

PRINT FOR LOVE
All those years working with clients, in the corporate world, were not wasted. Jacqui discovered her love for working with couples on their wedding stationery. She loves to take a vision and bring it to life. From the design stage, through to the printing when you can run your fingers and feel the tactile impression in the luxurious cotton paper.
It was a natural progression that ‘Print for Love’ was born and become part of the dream. Jacqui now works from a studio in an old mill, circa 1856, surrounded by a large collection of vintage wood type and printing presses.

The dream continues, printed with love…
