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

My own little Letterpress resurgence / revolution!

I have been thinking about making these cards for a while now all part of the plan to start my own little Letterpress resurgence /revolution!

They are printed on 100% recycled cotton papers like all my other cards and paper products.
I will have these and many other product available at the Beach Market at Blackmans Bay in August and if I decide that I am brave enough I will offer personalised stationary, birthday and wedding invites, people can order and pay a deposit at the market and pick them up when they have been printed. Or just make an appointment to have a talk about their printing needs at another time.
I don't know what do
you all think out there in blogland????
