FAQs

ARE YOUR SIZES STANDARD SIZES?

Yes, we print both A5 and A6 cardstock as standard. We can print up to 260x355mm on our press, however we only ever print in A4 for order of service booklet covers folded down to A5. We feel that the larger size detracts from the quality and attractiveness of letterpress printing.

 

 

WHAT IS INKLESS DE-BOSS?

The way in which the letterpress effect is achieved is by pressing a raised plate into the surface of the paper, leaving a deep impression. The raised part of the plate can either be inked or inkless. With ink, the impressed detail is coloured, which is how we print most of our pieces. Without ink, the impression is just as deep but is not coloured and can be a great way of really emphasising the inherent beauty of letterpress. A commonly confused point of terminology: de-boss is what we do and is where the detail is impressed below the surface of the paper. Embossing is where the detail is raised above.

 

 

DO YOU DO FOIL PRINTING?

No, we currently don’t offer foil printing as a service. We do offer two kinds metallic ink in Gold and Silver, however. These are not as metallic as foils but do have a sheen to them, which is especially visible on darker papers.

 

CAN YOU REPLICATE A DESIGN I HAVE SEEN ELSEWHERE?

No, we will not copy another designer’s work under any circumstances. Not only is this poor practice but it is a violation of copyright law. We suggest that if you have found a design you love elsewhere that you order directly from the designer.

 

 

WILL YOU PRINT MY DESIGN?

As a general rule, for wedding stationery we will not print work that was not designed in house, we are open to collaborative designing on a case by case basis however we suggest if you are looking for a print only service you go to a dedicated printer.

For personalised and business stationery (including business cards) we offer both a design and print-only service, and will work with you to ensure your design is suitable for letterpress printing.

  

WHAT IS YOUR MINIMUM ORDER?

We have a minimum order of 50 pieces, we can print under this quantity however we charge anything under this at the base rate of 50.

 

 

DO YOU SHIP INTERNATIONALLY?

Yes we ship all over the world, please get in contact for a specific quote, however most international orders ship for between £25.00-£35.00.

 

CAN I SEE A SAMPLE OF MY DESIGN BEFORE YOU PRINT?

Of course! You will receive an initial digital proof of your design followed by a series of further proofs with subsequent development proofs followed by a final proof for your final approval. We however don't offer physical proofs as this is not possible with the nature of letterpress printing.

 

 

WHAT ARE YOUR REFUND AND RETURN POLICIES?

We don't offer refunds or returns all orders are final. Please see our Terms & Conditions for further information on this.
