Letterpress cards Stitching cards These A2 cards (5.5” wide x 4.25” high) use an abstract drawing of the stitches that bind some of our albums. The rhythmic, handmade pattern of this gentle set of lines is sometimes printed as plain stitching, and others are accompanied by a message, including handwritten “congratulations” and “happy birthday” cards, as well as lowercase “oceans of love” (the way my great-grandmother signed her letters to my mom), and a simple “i love you”.

Coptic Stitch Journals These journals are covered with richly colored Japanese silkscreened papers (known as Chiyogami) and Nepalese fiber papers. The journals have 40 pages (80 front & back) of heavy, off-white printmaking paper, and are bound with a visible Coptic stitch, a self-reinforcing knotted structure, with waxed linen thread. This unique structure allows the book to lie flat when open and, while the stitching is delicate in appearance, it is also sturdy enough to carry with you and use every day.

Process...

Bookbinding

Letterpress printing

Creating custom work

Every book we make is bound by hand, and is made using archival, acid-free materials, to protect everything you put on its pages.

Letterpress printing, at its most basic, is the process of printing inked type and images from a raised surface. Each piece is individually printed by hand and each color of ink requires a separate run through the press.

Custom binding services range from wedding albums to artists’ portfolios, to protective drop spine boxes, and plenty more.

We offer a variety of binding styles, including decorative Coptic stitching, pamphlet binding, and traditional library- style binding. Each book is carefully constructed by hand and is functional, sturdy, and designed to last. Hand binding offers a lasting, meaningful element to the design and structure of any book, whether a promotional piece, a fine press book, or any album or keepsake.

Letterpress creates lovely, tactile images and allows the finest, most delicate lines of text and image to shine against rich, thick papers. We often use a 100% cotton stock that takes the impression of the plate wonderfully, and shows off the printing technique beautifully, as well as what differentiates it from modern forms of printing.

Letterpress printing options include custom invitations, stationery, business cards, announcements...or anything else that needs to look spectacular! We are happy to work with you to provide whatever binding and printing services you might need. Please contact us about your next project to find out what we can do!
