Here are some of our friends, fellow printers, and partners:
Jessie Miller – Letterpress Printer
Jessie Miller works with Hedge Sparrow Press. She prints in her studio using a treadle printing press dating from 1907 and brings antique and modern printing blocks to life. Metal letters – or ‘type’ – old and new is selected and arranged to create quirky messages and unique designs. Each card is printed individually using hand mixed shades of traditional rubber based inks.
The letterpress technique produces beautiful results, with the designs pressed into thick card. A now specialist technique, few places in the country have the equipment or expertise to print letterpress, making Jessie Miller Letterpress truly special.
