Interview with Pia from Biplane Press
When did you start letterpress printing?:
What do you like best about letterpress printing?:
The whole process, from design, to spending hours patiently printing and finally seeing the finished packaged product ready for the courier to collect.
What inspires you?:
Other letterpress printers, there is so much talent out there, I often find myself thinking 'Why didn't I think of that!?'
Which press(es), ink & paper do you usually use?:
We have an Adana 8x5, an Arab and a Commor Proofing press that I hope to refurbish in the Summer - if time and customers permit!
How would you describe your artwork?:
Vintage with a modern twist
What kind of products do you create?:
Mainly Birth Announcements, Birthday Invitations and Business cards. This year I want to focus more on wedding suites.
Do you offer custom work?:
Where can we buy your products?:

Do you offer workshops? If yes, what kind of?:
At the moment no, however in the future I would like to offer the opportunity to clients to come and help print their own orders
Is there anything you wished you had known as a beginner?:
That although Cranes Lettra is beautiful, so are a lot of other artists papers which are more economical and just as good.
