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

Seeing the funny side

I have notice recently that my sense of humour is coming through in my work. I have to admit my sense of humour can differ quite a bit to most people but I do on occassions strike the right note.

It is a wonderful feeling when people look at what I do and get the funny side, I guess I just like to see people smile and it is nice to know that what I find funny, others do as well
I find these tags rather sweet personally, I hope you all do as well!


  1. I like these tags alot! Can't wait to see your Christmas range.

  2. um ! this is my christmas range lol well some of it I wont be going crazy making wildly different stuff just for christmas. I just want to keep things as simple as possible!

  3. I like a 'left-field' sense of humour myself! The tags look great!

  4. Great idea ... love the humour! Christmas can often be the most stressful time adding a bit of humour is a great idea :)

  5. lol not sure I would get through Christmas without it Shelle !
