"We are a letterpress stationery shop and design studio based in Shrewsbury, UK. Founded in 2009, we are considered one of the pioneers in the resurgence of letterpress printing in the UK. We have come a long way, from humble beginnings, working on a treadle press in a garden shed, fast forward to 2018, where you'll find us in a beautiful studio and shop, bustling with creativity and production. We are faithful lovers of this historic craft. We believe in the creation of beautiful things and we want, like you, to feel good about where our beautiful things come from." Vici Blenkharn- Founder
The Paperawards support and recognise the creativity and innovation in the greetings card industry.

You can buy our You Are My Universe greetings card here, along with many other letterpress greetings cards and stationery!
We print sustainably, doing things all responsible printers should do. We use vegetable oil based inks and and citrus-based solvents for cleaning up. We recycle our offcuts, and printing plates. Ink tins and used rags are kept out of landfill. We donate surplus paper and envelopes to primary schools. We print on cotton paper and FSC certified paper and we continue to challenge ourselves to do better.
