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

Fruits of todays labour
Gee it doesn't look like I did much does it but it took half the day to print about 300 tags with 5 different saying or what ever on them mind you there were kids and cups of tea and looking at the net and having lunch and talking with family and pushing ruby around the court yard on her bike ect I have to another 400 tags tomorrow but in red this time if there is anyone that would like to do my printing for me tomorrow just let me know.
I am my own worst enemy really when it comes to printing jobs, I like to get them done asap after getting the actual order so that I don't have any surprises and not be able to get them done fast enough who would have though I would turn out to be so efficient about stuff .
