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

seed packets , labels and printing with Ruby

hi everyone, yesterday I finally got stuck into the printing some poppy labels and some seed packet packs , the linocuts were starting to mount up so I thought I'd better get stuck in to some new stuff with a little help from Ruby and Dolly
Ruby Has become quite the little printer actually at the last Woodbridge market she was helping me print my little business tags and when anyone walked past she would stop printing grab a card and say scooossme Lady (rubytalk) would you like a business card ! with a big grin on her face .. now how can anyone say no to an adorable ginning little dot like Ruby when she thrusts a card at you insisting you have one ? She cant wait for the next Market so she can help me again !


  1. Hi; your prints are absolutely gorgeous! (and so is your daughter). What a great idea to print seed packets. They are really lovely! I have just started experimenting with combining lino and letterpress printing too. Beautiful. Oh and I hearted you on Etsy (I am SomethingWonderfulUK).
    Best wishes! Kim
