Getting Tactile with Letterpress

Next Back

The Red Tiki slaves were thrilled to get a very up-close-and-personal look at some letterpress and specialty finishing techniques, thanks to the friendly crew at Pilpel Print. We have always had an undeniable affection for the craft of letterpress, and never miss any opportunity to lovingly stroke some paper!

Grinning like proud parents, we got to witness some beautiful old Heidelbergs whirring into action, churning out flawless foiling and embossing. The sights! The smells! The lovely results that came straight off the press and into our adoring hands! We were ...

The SxSW interactive festival in Austin, Texas this March was a truly amazing experience. Being nominated as the only Australian finalist for the 2011 SxSW Interactive Business Award was an absolute honour. Getting free tickets to attend the prestigious festival was extremely cool.

We learnt so much. The forums, workshops, lectures, keynotes & panels put on where ...
