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

Ask and you shall receive

While at the Boutique market this past weekend and for the last couple of months at Salamanca market I have had customers asking for the longer lengths of lino cut  bunting,  I was only making smaller one and they have been super dooper popular but people saw the ones I decorated my market gazebo with and wanted to buy them so after Meeting Rachel of Boutique markets I decided it was time to do it.
Rachel had asked for a red and forest green one so here it is!

I think these look lovely strung up

I will also have them in the red and aqua flora tag design as well as a red snowflake design if all goes well and I don't sell them all first, I will have these for sale at all the upcoming Christmas markets 
red snowflake design also available

Aqua flora design
