Porchlight Press was born out of a love of making.
Their in-house fleet of presses include trusty Vandercook proofing presses, Heidelberg windmills and acclaimed graphic and type designer Jim Rimmer’s 1907 Colt’s Press — Porchlight Press
A vibrant two-sided postcard style invitation with the Porchlight graphic on the front and party details on the back. Bright red ink and red foil on the envelope exterior tied the piece together as well as created an element of excitement and surprise.
A postcard for a four-hour private workshop at Porchlight Press to learn the basics of letterpress printing on a Vandercook Proof Press. Produced on soft Lettra cotton and edge-painted bright orange, this piece showcases the unique qualities of letterpress printing.
There are three whimsical notebooks in this series, each referencing a traditional book genre: Adventure, How-To and Romance. The genre is suggested by the cover title and graphic and complemented by the interior cover design and dedication.
A 15%-off coupon for letterpress printing at Porchlight Press. One side features the coupon copy while the other shows off a colourful, retro geometric design. Business in the front, party in the back.
Coaster series to promote the Porchlight Press brand. Each coaster features a clever tag line that reflects the company identity as well as business contact information … an alternative, multi-functional take on a business card.
This limited edition art print features Woody Guthrie’s famous New Year’s Rulin’s. Hand-set in Futura Medium and Cooper Black metal type, these inspiring words to live by were hand cranked with love on a Vandercook proof print press.
