My name is Karolina and I'm the sole proprietor running impressus.
My fascination with letterpress printing began in 2013 while planning my wedding. During my search for a perfect wedding invitation, I stumbled upon numerous examples of letterpress printed ones. The beauty and elegance of letterpress was so captivating that all I started thinking about was learning how to print myself.
I took a letterpress workshop in March 2014 and the hands-on experience ignited an even brighter spark. And in June 2014 I acquired the stunning Golding Pearl Improved No.11. The Golding presses were manufactured in Boston in the early 1900s and it is an honour to have such beautiful antique in my studio.
Every time I am at the press I learn something new. Letterpress printing is a time-consuming process that requires patience, dedication and precision. Often, it is a trial and error type of experience. But the payback is so worth it and I love it! I take pride in the products I sell and, as a perfectionist, I spend the required time on each order to ensure that, first and foremost, I am pleased with the outcome. If you entrust me with your project, you can be assured that I will put my heart and soul into it.
If you have a design idea for your business cards or wedding invitations or would like to have something special printed for a loved one, I would love to hear from you. Please get in touch via the "Contact" page.
