“Have nothing in your house that you do not know
to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.”
William Morris (1834–1896)
At Aspen Press we produce a range of cards and stationery.
Using traditional methods, we produce useful, beautiful products.
We hand set movable lead type on a variety of letterpress machines including a vintage Golding Pearl treadle press built in 1910 using high quality paper and card milled in the United Kingdom. Whenever possible we prefer to use paper from English mills who have strong sustainability policies but we do use other papers on occasion. Samples are available on request.
Our notebooks are hand stitched and hand trimmed.
From design to delivery we hand produce small batches of products that are available through our Etsy shop, through a small network of retailers and at selected events.
In addition to producing our own range of in-house designed cards and stationery, we occasionally take on commission work utilising our large library of vintage typefaces and ornaments.
