Who loves letterpress?I do! I also love travel, Thai food, beaches, big cities, reading business strategy books, and spending time with my husband, our two beautiful daughters and our fur-child (Koli the boxer dog).
I am the owner, lead designer, and printer at Sunlit Letterpress, a Vancouver letterpress design and printing studio located in the suburbs just outside Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. I fell in love with letterpress early in my design career after reading an article about the dying art. I studied letterpress at the Emily Carr Institute of Art + Design in Vancouver under the late Jim Rimmer – renowned Canadian letterpress master printer, type designer, type founder, and illustrator.
In our Vancouver letterpress studio we use vintage printing presses from the late 1800s and early 1900s to craft each piece of stationery by hand. All our letterpress stationery is designed and printed in-house (we don't farm out our printing!) using the highest quality materials and experienced craftsmanship.
Although we live to design and print luxury wedding invitations for brides and grooms from around the world, we also design and print letterpress business cards, personal calling cards, birth announcements, birthday and other special event invitations, postcards, promotional pieces, high-end restaurant menus, hang tags, marketing collateral, and more.
