Workshop heaven at The Smallprint Company!


We’re operating limited opening hours for the foreseeable future so please check instagram or facebook for the following week’s exact days and times.

We’ve restarted our letterpress workshops from September with number restrictions; sessions are limited to no more than 5 guests from the following:

  • one or two bubbles or households,
  • groups of 2
  • individuals

All of this is subject to current guidelines of course, so please do get in touch to discuss. We won’t be scheduling dates for workshops as we have done in the past, so sessions dates and times can be arranged to suit you. Gift vouchers have also been extended from 1 to 2 years.

We're Good To Go England

Covid-19 secure. We have been awarded the ‘Good to go’ status by Visit England and the following precautions are in place:

  • Please wear a face mask when visiting the premises.
  • Hand sanitiser is located in the shop area
  • Please maintain a 1m+ distance from others at all times
  • Toilet facilities are not available
  • Payment by card is preferred
  • We cannot give change for car parking (the RCP car park on Stafford Street, opposite Friary Street, operates an online payment service and currently charges £2.50 for all day parking)

We continue to design and print so please email to discuss your ideas. Our cards, gifts and books are also available to buy online and your continued support is hugely appreciated.

Please follow us on social media for up-to-date information and we very much look forward to welcoming you back to our little studio.

Chris is an exceedingly experienced printer in commercial print, fine art and letterpress and Hannah has been teaching decorative bookbinding for several years.
