Welcome to Ruby Victoria Letterpress & printmaking
Here you will find photos of all my original hand carved linocut prints and letterpress printing.
A commercial printer by trade a printmaker by choice.
I specialize in original handcarved lino block prints with a bit of letterpress thrown in for good measure.
All printed on antique printing machines with that unmistakable bite into the paper that you can only get with letterpress printing
The work that I do is not created on a computer everything is hand drawn then hand carved out of lino then printed one impression at a time on my tabletop letterpress machine
I do not use polymer which limits me somewhat in regards to type but I love to use traditional methods in my printing that involve handset type and hand carved designs and I think this is what make my work totally Original and Unique to what other people are doing right now and it also meaning everything I make is an original work of art
I love what I do and love to share it with others that are interested

HOT OFF THE LETTERPRESS
My first saleable items off the letterpress .
I will have these for sale at the coming Blackmans bay beach market on the 6th of June .
I am hoping to have a bit more work done by then more greeting cards, small gift cards, personal calling cards plus many of my original lino cut prints unframed to keep the prices down.
These are the first batch of invitations printed on the Heidelberg platen and the swing tags and little name and contact detail cards printed on the adana 4x5 at tafe yesterday.
It feels really good to be printing again!!
