Artisan Print

— Printing the old fashioned way —

Hand mixed ink, vintage letterpress machines, luxurious cotton paper

The Smallprint Company combines our love of typography with design to explore the world of traditional letterpress print.

Using antique presses, original type, beautiful papers and hand mixed inks, we handset text in the traditional manner. Using our collection of original type which dates back to the 19th century and mixing it with contemporary design, beautiful works are created using modern techniques and printed on one of our fantastic presses.

Do you fancy trying letterpress for yourself? We offer regular workshops at the studio for beginners and more experienced letterpress printers.

We love letterpress!


— The studio is closed July 28 - Aug 15 2016 —

Please bear with us whilst our new studio gets a makeover. We're aiming to get the presses up and running by Monday, August 15th and be fully operational by the beginning of September. We will respond to emails as quickly as we can and thank you for your patience at this very exciting time!
