"Just perfect! I wanted a one-on-one course and couldn't have picked a better company to introduce me to all things 'letterpress'. Both Chris and Hannah were warmly welcoming ... Chris is wonderfully patient and knowledgeable ... I couldn't have found a better company and I highly recommend The Smallprint Company'."
