Little Peach Co. Letterpress Printing



What bride doesn't love letterpress? Little Peach Co. have recently opened a brand new shop in Brisbane, and they are obsessed with all things paper and design, with a love for customising wedding stationery on a bride-by-bride basis.

Letterpress printing uses a photopolymer or lead plate with a raised surface which is inked and pressed into a sheet of thick fluffy paper, to create a beautiful three-dimensional deep impression.

Little Peach Co. use a rubber based ink, which is weighed with accuracy and mixed by hand to create custom colours. Everything is done in-store by hand, from designing the printing blocks, to mixing the ink and stamping into the thick cotton card. This means no two pieces are entirely identical, and everything is created just for you.
