Made to make your mouth water

We’ve had a lot of fun printing this poster, and we’re rather proud of it.

We started off by setting the wood type and proofing it in black to get position. We then decided on the colours, using our trusty Pantone book as a guide, and set about separating the type for each printing. We checked each colour against the black proof, lining it up on our light box.

Called Tutti Frutti, it’s available from our ebay shop. There are also some more pictures on our Flickr site.

We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

  1. That certainly is a mouthwatering piece of letterpress work Phil! The colours look incredibly rich.

    Good luck with your new shop.

    All the best,
    Justin
