The Little Press
The Little Press started out as one little hand operated printing press named 'Leo', and very quickly grew into something much bigger.
They found 'Big Boy', a beautiful old Chandler & Price, weighing in about 650 kilos in an old garage near the ocean. He allows them to get that beautiful, tactile impression into a large area of their paper, with his own two tonnes of momentum. It's all powered by the treadle, keeping them fit, but also gives them complete control to monitor the printing as they hand feed each sheet.
Their designs all start as hand penned illustrations and typography, and once developed with our clients to the perfect invitation - we letterpress print them in our studio in sunny Perth.
