Design and Letterpress, Jacqui SharplesPrint for Love of Wood a small design and letterpress studio based in the Pennines, Lancashire dedicated to the love of wood type and tree hugging paper. It is a labour of love by award winning freelance graphic designer Jacqui Sharples, a Lancashire ‘lass’ inspired by a passion for print, the smell of ink, vintage typography and her collection of wood type.

Jacqui prints in house on a range of vintage printing presses, including a Victorian treadle, using traditional methods of hand setting type. All the presses are manually operated so the only energy used is an eco-friendly light bulb and some muscle power! The paper and card is carefully sourced tree friendly stock and the ink is recycled from printers who have closed down due to the impact of digital on traditional print methods.
