If you've got a color for us to print but want to see what the most accurate cmyk/hex code will be, try sending us the file below with some color options.

We'll look it up at a website like encycolorpedia.com and look at some possible options, plugging those into each line of the color tester in Adobe Illustrator. (The lines are grouped and opacity adjustments automatically made, to make life easier for us all.) 1. Find some hexcodes: 2. Download the file and edit the file with your colors: 3. Save the file and email us the pdf to p ..read more

FAQ: Can We Print Your Canva Files
inviting : Letterpress Boutique
by ashley mcneill

Yes, but because of the difficulties of Canva files when it comes to setting up for letterpress printing (or even some digital!), starting Jan 2024 we'll be adding a $75 fee to any projects with Canva files (unless, of course, absolutely no editing is needed. Which would be a miracle.) I'm all for DIY, trust me, but usually we end up spending our time sourcing the fonts used (and they're not always free!) so that we can outline them for printing plates, editing sizes, and sometimes we actually have to recreate the entire file. And time is in short supply. Thanks for understanding! (And it woul ..read more

Papers for Foil Stamping
inviting : Letterpress Boutique
by ashley mcneill

Like letterpress printing, some papers seems to take to the hot foil stamping better than others. (I'll work on gathering photos for examples.) Handmade Papers Favorites I've noticed that papers that aren't super plush for a great letterpress impression foil quite well and these have been rather successful with our little machine. The stiffness of these papers works in their favor here: Idyll Paper Fabulous Fancy Pants While very textured, and thicker than the above, they foil well: Rag Papeterie Fringe & Rose With Complications: Porridge Papers While my favorite for letterpress, it's to ..read more
