I have to admit, owning being able to use this vintage equipment we have is great. I’m very lucky that this allows me to have fun and exercise some things that I might not get to do in the day-to-day work I do.  



2014 / Pomegranate Letterpress / Self Promo. For Christmas we wanted to send something extra special to clients, friends and family for all their support to our little letterpress adventure. My wife baked her late mother’s no fail whipped shortbread. In addition to just being a fun piece, we wanted to honour “Bubby” in a package design of her own.

I designed, letterpressed using polymer plates and steal rule die-cut the box along with a little note inside. We’ve been told since, that some people have kept the box, it’s empty of course and we keep being asked when the next run is.
