A time intensive print run, but well worth it for spectacular KVGD branding for Kerr Vernon.

Quite a treat to letterpress print the 4 colours ink plus black onto Colorplan 540gsm Cool Grey by GF Smith.

This exciting piece was performed by Glasgow Press on a Heidelberg 'Grand', in a style best described as sforzando, yet andante.
Martelato (Italian term: 'hammered') accents highlight the beauty of the musical notation which was received warmly by plump paper, Flannel 120gsm.

Wolf's Lairs

Cracking idea from the designers at Smiling Wolf.
Triplex board, 270 each board adding up to an abundant 810gsm . . . alternate three shades in the bonding process, so each card has varying colours face and reverse . . . letterpress print your effective design in black for a business card that's a howling success.

'Tis The Season

And so the year rolls round and we are on the cusp of autumn after a fine summer of Scottish sunshine. This is the printers' Christmas season, as orders come in for party invitations, at homes, greetings cards, menus, place cards, concerts, special events at country houses and city hotels.
A card is the perfect way to greet friends and family and those with whom you've done business over the past year; an excellent example of which is this design from Deep, letterpress printed in two colours on Conqueror Laid 350gsm.


A charming Christmas sentiment, letterpress printed to good effect on Colorplan 540gsm. Pop it in a matching envelope - custom made sizes available and lined in any colour, if you wish.

Happy New Year

A New Year card is just the thing if you find yourself so busy in the run up to Christmas that you don't manage to get the cards written and posted to your friends around the world. Instead, send greetings at your leisure in the holiday week between Boxing Day and Hogmanay!
This personal card is letterpress printed on Somerset Velvet 300gsm.
Sorry to bring this up so early in the season, but now is the time to dream up a magical design to showcase your talent and bring you prosperity in the dark winter months of January and February!
