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

a busy morning

wow I have had a busy morning .
First dropping Ruby Gallooby off to daycare the off to the shops to get some stuff from the newsagent then back home for breakfast and a cuppa tea then into it again .
I have an order for birthday cards I had to do today that should have been finished and delivered today but I didn't get the plates until last night as the guy that makes them had a flood out at his place during the week and was all panic stations , So I had to work on my lack of patience again! I have to report I am not getting any better with that! Patience I mean.
Anyhoo I finally got the cards completed and i just have to fold and package them after they have completely dried , More waiting! The tomorrow the bit I like best ,wrapping them with brown paper and string and delivering them tomorrow morning with Ruby my little Mascot/ delivery guy! !!
