PRINT YOUR OWN DESIGN
Wednesdays/Thursdays/Saturdays - 9.30am for 4-5 hours
Ealing, West London
One or two attendees
Come along to my garden studio, and print your own design on my beautiful 1950's Vicobold!
This workshop is perfect for creatives and design enthusiasts who want that luxurious, hand made feel to their work, and to be able to proudly say about their stationery "This? I made it myself!"
Booking this session includes:
Consultation on your design and needs in the run up to the workshop (email and two phone consultations)
Adapting your own digital design into a photopolymer printing plate
Printing a single sided design, in one or two ink colours (or a split fountain - the art of blending several ink colours across the press at once)
Up to 100 business cards, pre-cut to 55x85mm and available in white cotton card (a lovely cotton and FSC paper mix) or fashionable greyboard (recycled pulp, soft enough to take a deep impression!)
Time in the studio - An introduction to the Vicobold, my large motorised printing press with the chance to mix the ink, set up the press, and print your cards yourself.
Advice on sourcing envelopes or any additional items you may need
THINGS TO CONSIDER
Please only book if you have a finished design ready to go. I will feedback on any changes you need to make in order to make it work well with letterpress. If you're unsure of anything, please get in touch via the Contact page.
If you are after something a little different - more than 100 prints, a different cardstock, or more ink colours, for example - just drop me a note at and I can tailor a workshop specifically to your needs.
On the day, biscuits and fruit will be provided but please bring a packed lunch in case we are printing past 1pm!
Your order confirmation email serves as your workshop ticket. I will send you directions and further details within a few days of your booking.
If none of the dates listed work for you, or you wanted a particular day before a big event, drop me a note! I will squeeze you in if I possibly can
PLEASE NOTE: These workshops are not suitable for children under 12 (due to the strength and patience needed to operate the press), or those who cannot stand for long periods of time. If you have any questions about this please do drop me a note.
Cancellation Policy: Two weeks' notice is required for a refund, unless I am able to fill your spot with less notice, in which case I will always do my best to be flexible. Please email me on
