About

I found a small notebook with a pennyfarthing letterpressed onto it with just enough impression to make me completely infatuated and curious...

I soon found out that it was letterpressed, which ignited something in my curious mind.
Soon after a soul stirring journey to India, I bought a small table top Adana 8x5 from a lovely old gentleman on the other side of the world, and begun hand printing designs, witnessing them transformed by the printing process. There's a moment of magic that happens to a design when it is brought to life through being hand printed, it's like it is born a soul.

After nearly a year of adventuring to far away lands, I returned home to my seaside town. Fate quickly brought me together with a big old 650kg Chandler & Price 10x15 ...a handsome old fella which can only be called "Big Boy", next to my tiny Adana.

When naming my printing venture I came up with The Little Press. I suppose it's an ironic name now that I've got one of the biggest presses in town.
The Little Press will always retain the boundless spirit of what started off from a just a little idea, the inspiration from the world and life which told me to just go with it, and the love of the handmade.

All of our art prints are sent as safely as possible to keep them nice and flat.
Smaller items like cards are sent either in a bubble wrap envelope or in a plastic protector inside a regular envelope to allow for a more affordable postage rate.

We ship by standard non-tracked air mail. If you would like postage tracking please convo us and we will be happy to arrange that for you, although it will be slightly more expensive.
Refunds and Exchanges
If for some reason you are no happy with your prints we will refund your order total if it is sent back to us.
Additional policies and FAQs
As we are in Australia, the time difference can mean we can't reply to messages as soon as we would like. We are up to 13 hours ahead of NY, and 9 ahead of the UK. We reply to messages as soon as we see them, but please keep the time difference in mind.
