Beautifully Crafted Letterpress Greetings Card, lovingly Hand Printed in the UK
Founded in 2019, Emma Bradstreet Paper & Press was born out of a love for the age old craft of letterpress.
Inspired by beautiful tactile papers, soft neutral palettes, and thoughtful design, I am passionate about creating stationery that is uniquely special and resonates with the person that receives it.
Through a combination of traditional printing methods and timeless, elegant design, I create everything from bespoke wedding and event invitations to everyday stationery and greetings cards. Everything is carefully designed and patiently hand-printed in house by me ensuring everything is produced to perfection.
I hope you enjoying browsing my collection of cards and find something you love!
Luxury letterpress printed greetings cards
Each and every card I sell has been lovingly hand printed one by one using my antique 1920s Letterpress Printing Press. It is powered by foot and weighs a very heavy 350+kg!
Letterpress printing is a labour of love that requires a great level of skill, patience, and craftsmanship. It creates the most beautiful and distinctive tactile impression that it is known and loved for.
Letterpress used to be the normal form of printing until the 20th Century but now is classed as an 'Endangered Craft' with less than 200 full-time printers left in the UK. I feel very honoured to be part of continuing this craft amongst the younger generation and keeping it alive and protected.
