Welcome to eight five press, a mini letterpress printing studio in the heart of Bristol, above the light and airy Makers shop & gallery. My name is Mog and I work using the Adana 8x5 platen press shown above. Its vintage loveliness is hand operated by me to create original cards, prints and stationary.
Letterpress printing is experiencing a wonderful revival. The process of physically printing is completely absorbing. I love the smell of the inks and the mechanics of the machine and seeing the results on a freshly printed piece of paper.
