Interview with Lisa from Missive
When did you start letterpress printing?: 
What do you like best about letterpress printing?: 
The authentic look of letterpress—it's tactile, beautiful and perfect in its imperfection.
What inspires you?: 
Antique illustration, rare books and alphabets, vintage ephemera, calligraphy and hand lettering, interiors and textiles
Which press(es), ink & paper do you usually use?: 
Missive is home to 3 vintage platen presses dating from 1912—a Chandler & Price Pilot, a Chandler & Price 10x15 and a Kluge 10x15. We print mainly on 100% cotton papers, but we love to throw 100% recycled kraft into the mix from time to time.
How would you describe your artwork?: 
We love a blend of classic and modern, but always with crisp, deep impressions.
What kind of products do you create?: 
Greeting cards, social stationery, calling cards, business cards, art prints, custom wedding invitations, baby announcements and more.
Do you offer custom work?: 
Where can we buy your products?:
