Using artisan methods, manual printing techniques with a nod to slow-living, we currently offer hot foil blocking and letterpress across a variety of products.
We’re a small studio and love to work with small and medium-sized businesses on short runs and with low minimums, as well as those locally based in York, UK.
Our Services are as follows:
Hot Foil Blocking
Also known as foil pressing or foil printing, this is a process of adding a shiny foil element by applying pressure and high temperature, pressing the foil onto the substrate. We can foil onto many different things – paper and card, some plastics, stickers, labels and ribbon, wood and leather to name but a few. Product personalisation is a huge industry, and our hot foiling is great value for this purpose.
We can work with you, the client directly, or we do work with businesses who white label the products we apply foil to, for example, fine art wedding stationery designers who wish to offer foil pressed stationery but do not have the equipment in-house, we offer a cost effective solution. There is no substitute for a crisp foil pressed impression on a lovely board!
Letterpress (coming soon)
A process where coloured ink is rolled over a surface, which is then applied to the paper or card using pressure. This gives a luxurious and handcrafted feel, and the paper has a lovely deep impression where the print has been made. Colours are applied one at a time, so text or an image using several colours can be achieved. It’s great for business cards, wedding invitations, greetings cards, art prints and hanging tags.
Please get in touch to register your interest in letterpress printed goods.
Graphic Design Services
We can manage the design of your printed goods, or we can work to your own design files. We also offer an affordable simple logo and branding design service, for fledgeling businesses or those in need of a refresh.
Surface Pattern Design & Illustration
Expand your brand with a repeating pattern or illustrated details. A pattern design for gift wrapping paper, postcards, business cards, or greetings cards also make a wonderful impression.
