Marby and Elm
London Artisan Producer (2.3miles)
Contemporary stationary made using traditional letterpress methods. Each card is crafted individually by hand using illustrative blocks made from hand drawings and contemporary fluoro inks.
Founder Eleanor calls the letter press process; “time consuming but highly rewarding”, using time honoured, traditional craftsmen’s techniques and equipment, including an Adana 8×5 and an Adana flatbed Q H with metal and wood type ranging from 6 point Gill Sans to 72 point Caslon Old Face type to create her letterpress cards.
Each card is hand cut, printed by hand with hand mixed inks and fed through the letterpress by hand – so each piece has a unique look, feel and texture.
