Our enthusiasm for the craft of letterpress combined with our expertise and love of design, typography and illustration ensures that every project, big and small, is imbued with heart and soul.
We print both our own projects, designed in house, and projects for other creative people and agencies.
Letterpress printing is one of the most exquisite printing processes available.
It is also one of the oldest. Letterpress itself hasn’t changed much since Johan Gutenberg popularised the process with movable type in 1440. A form of relief printing, the design is converted into a raised and reversed surface. The surface is inked and pressed into paper, creating the right reading image and leaving a deep and lasting impression in the paper and with the person holding the finished piece. Letterpress is a truly timeless craft.
At The Hungry Workshop, we use a Heidelberg ‘Windmill’ platen to deliver our work to the highest quality. And although we don’t ink the plates manually or feed each sheet by hand, every print run requires constant attention. Each sheet is inspected, with ink and impression adjustment to produce the unique tactile finish of letterpress.
