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!


Are you looking for a creative space to hold an activity, meeting or networking event? The Workshop is available for hire on an hourly or daily rate and includes Wi-Fi. Suitable for up to 6-8 people.
