Print & Ephemera: Letterpress Printing & Kindred Trades

Biography

We aim to preserve and revive the traditional forms of print-based graphic design that are often threatened with obsolescence.

Print & Ephemera are letterpress printers and purveyosr of typographic design. All their work is produced entirely by hand in the UK using one hundred year old treadle presses, collections of traditional lead and woodblock type, brass picture blocks and all manner of printing equipment.

Today Print & Ephemera's products have the flexibility of modern day design, coupled with the individuality, quality and characteristics of the Victorian printing era. Through craftsmanship, dedication and patience they continue to keep alive the letterpress tradition and apply it to a contemporary setting.

Print & Ephemera operates as a jobbing press; offering a wide range of print commission and graphic design services for commercial or individual jobs; from bespoke designed products for retail to personal business cards and wedding stationery.
