Competition Time!

We’re celebrating the launch of our new wedding inspired workshops and we want to say a huge congratulations to everyone who has got recently engaged. What better way than to launch our brand new Save the Date Letterpress Workshops?! 

Such an exciting time and if you haven’t already, we’re sure that you’ll be falling headlong into the wedding plans very soon…

Well! The first thing you need to do is ensure that your nearest and dearest are available for the Big Day and what better way to let them know, than with a Save the Date card? With our Save the Date workshops, you can spend a few hours with your fiancée / fiancé or friends and family, perfecting the perfect announcement for the special day. Each workshop is supervised by our expert printer Chris, who will guide you through the session, taking into account the style and colour that you are looking for. At the end of the session, you’ll be able to take away a bundle of Save the Dates including envelopes (plus some guaranteed smiles).

Bookbinding workshops in The Creative Space

NEW for 2017! Beginners Bookbinding workshops

Our Beginners Bookbinding workshops are run once a month on a Saturday afternoon and are already proving popular.

I ran the first workshop last weekend with 2 artists and both students went away with their own hardback, Japanese bound book – and hopefully an insight into how to carry on with their newfound skill.

Aimed at those with little or no experience of binding, we learn how to cover a board with a paper or fabric, assemble the book and stitch with one of the basic Japanese or stab bindings.

If you would like to make a book specific to a project – photography, art or even a wedding perhaps – contact Hannah to discuss.

If you would like to learn this absorbing craft, book onto a workshop either by emailing or via our Eventbrite page (booking fees apply).

First Anniversary gifts

Calling all newly weds! You may be wondering what the perfect gift is to give your beloved for your first anniversary. Traditionally it is a paper gift, and cotton in America.

Look no further… The Smallprint Co. will hand print the perfect paper gift for happy couples and all you have to do is supply the text. What’s more, we print on cotton paper, so we’ve got all bases covered!

Popular ideas include wedding vows or a reading, first dance lyrics or an excerpt from a favourite novel or poem. Of course, the content is completely up to you!

Another wonderful idea for a personal gift is to book a letterpress session for the both of you. Choose a time to suit you both – from Monday to Saturday and in the morning, afternoon, evening. Spend 3 hours together learning to compose and print your chosen text – and you get to take the print away with you too.

Prices start from…

  • Commissioned Prints £55
  • Letterpress workshop £130 per couple for 3 hours
  • Gift vouchers are available
