The Winklebag Press

TRADITIONAL LETTERPRESS PRINTING

Here at The Winklebag Press we use a couple of ancient presses and metal
and wooden type to produce printed material with a unique quality.

All of our equipment is ‘previously enjoyed’, as they say in California, mostly
rescued from retired printers who hoped their presses would continue to be
used for their original purpose rather than ending up in a skip. And much of
our board, paper and inks comes from printers and suppliers who were closing
down and were happy to see their stock go to a good home (the ultimate in
recycling – no extra energy needed.)

We work for private and business clients producing everyday stationery,
invitations and related items for special occasions. We can help with design
and layout, choice of paper and stock,finishing and binding. We hold a nice
selection of woodletter, metal type, borders and ornaments but are also very
happy to make photopolymer plates from PDFs (yep, we’ve also got a Mac
and InDesign.)

And we’re happy to print short or long runs – get in touch and we’ll be
delighted to give you a quote or advice on your project.
