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

MAYDAY! MAYDAY! MAYDAY!


Does anyone know where I might be able to find a good range of quills envelopes in Hobart
My usual suppler Office works it seems has started cutting back on envelope stocks and aren't actually getting as many colour as before and only getting a minimum of each colour at a time I can't believe it aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh!
I have tried looking at the Quills website but I can't find the envelope section, could it be they arent making them any more? surely not !

  2. I would ask at an art material store, because Quill also make lots of art materials like Visual Art diaries and portfolios - so they may be able to order them in for you?

  5. Hello stationery friend! I live in Bundaberg QLD and I get my Quill Env's through ASTAAT here. I produce stationery and they order them for me by the 100's and get discounted prices. Let me know if you get stuck, I am just about to place another order and could tag it onto mine and forward them to you?? I am also ordering envelopes through Double Day Paper Company and getting wholesale prices there. Let me know if I can help... Cheers Jolene x info@ideastakeflight.com.au
