Aspen Press

Letterpress & Stationery

"At Aspen Press we produce letterpress cards and stationery.

 

Using traditional methods, we produce beautiful products.

 

In our small printshop in Orford we hand set movable lead type which we then print on a Golding Pearl press built in 1910 and print on high quality paper and card from English mills who have strong sustainability policies."

 

Owner Pat Walker says "For as long as I can remember, I have had a great passion for anything connected with lettering or made of paper.

 

When I discovered Letterpress in 2011 I felt it was something that I had been waiting to do .  I attended a Letterpress course at Central St Martins School of Art in London, set up Aspen Press, and since then have not looked back.  Letterpress is everything I thought it would be and more.  I love the fact that printing with movable type is a very old process that can be traced back to Johannes Gutenberg in the 15th century and that today there are still many foundries casting movable lead type known as monotype."

 

We have a full range of cards and stationery, including notebooks of various sizes and notecards of exceptional quality.   In particular the box of inspirational quotes and the box of book quotes make excellent gifts.  

 

New line  Autumn 2018- A5 quality handbound notebooks with pretty paper covers.
