Jacqui is a freelance graphic designer inspired by a passion for print, the smell of ink, vintage typography and her collection of wood type.

Using traditional methods of hand setting type and a range of vintage printing presses, including a Victorian treadle, she creates prints to frame for the home and stationery.

All her presses are manually operated so the only energy used is an eco friendly light bulb and some muscle power!

All the paper and card is tree friendly stock and the ink is recycled from printers who have sadly closed down due to the impact of digital on traditional print methods.
