How can I get something printed by The Print Project?
It works two ways. 1) We design and print your item using our wood or lead type and extensive
range of ornaments/borders/cuts. Or 2) you supply us with a hi-res PDF of your artwork and
we’ll make a polymer plate and print from that.
What type of paper can you print on?
We can print on anything that will go through our presses. But we prefer to use 100% recycled
stock where possible. Or offcuts.
Can you print pictures?
Yes, line art works best. Halftones are hard to reproduce and have to be printed on our
Can I come and print my own business card/poster/invite etc?
Yes, but you’ll need one to one supervision for this and it ain’t cheap. Still not put off?
Then get in touch via our contact page.
Do you print with a ‘heavy impression’?
Yes, but only if requested and only with polymer plates or hot metal (Ludlow/Linotype).
How much ink do you have?
Enough to print with until the sun burns out.
Have you got loads of type?
Can you print full colour?
No. Full colour is more suited to offset litho or digital printing. Letterpress is GREAT
for spot colours.
Can you print white on black? (Or any light colour on black?)
Yes, but it won’t look ‘white’ as white ink isn’t 100% opaque, meaning the result will be a
sort of ‘grey’. We can ink it twice but this will cost more. Think about foiling or using a
metallic ink as these work better on dark stock.
Do you run workshops?
We can tailor a workshop to your needs or you can book onto one of ours. Get in touch via
our contact page.
Do you work with design agencies/designers?
Yes, all the time!
Do you provide proofs of your wood type?
Yes! Fling us some money and we’ll deal you some beauties.
I want to get involved with The Print Project, how can I do this?
You can’t at the moment as there isn’t enough hours in the day. Sorry.
Do you take donations of type, ink, paper or presses?
Yes. Get in touch via our contact page.
Do you like dogs?
Prefer cats, but one of us is partial to cute little dogs.
