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

The christmas / wedding spirit

Todays printing has involved printing christmas related tags and wedding note cards.
The images I have used are original printers blocks some 40 years old, maybe even older.
I especially like the wedding couple nice clean lines and prints extremely well.
The card
i have used is 100% recycled cardboard the black ink looks really classy on it and the impression looks lovely .

The wedding note cards are printed on an old fav, antique white 100% cotton rag paper, these would be great for rsvp cards, thankyou cards, save the date cards I have left them blank for when I/if I get an order then I can personalise them with handset type, they will look very special with the crisp printed type.


  1. Loving Santa! The Wedding couple looks very sweet too. Know where I'm getting my Christmas cards and tags from!!

  2. the santa cards are cute and i love the red and white 'candy cane' string

  3. thanks Annie & isis for your lovely comments i really love the old blocks and have been waiting for the right time to use them.

  4. Thanks Narelle for your comment on my blog - thank Allan too for his feedback. I totally agree with what he said. It did seem a little odd with some of the places the guy was placing the cups and the repeated elbow in my back was a little unexciting! Ah well, live and learn!!
