Discover The Whistle Press – beautiful bespoke letterpress stationery and botanical art prints made in Cirencester combining modern and antique methods.
Hi I’m Suzanne and I create beautiful, bespoke and personal letterpress stationery, combining modern and antique methods creatively and thoughtfully.
I love all things design, stationery and above all…..letterpress! It is fair to say that it is my passion.
This passion shines through in all of the unique designs and letterpress wedding invitations and suites.
Every order is patiently handmade, lovingly assembled and meticulously checked over.
I design and print all work in house at my perfectly petite design & print studio in the beautiful area, the Cotswolds in Cirencester at New Brewery Arts Centre in England. I enjoy and are constantly inspired by the alluring views from our studio windows and the enticing countryside and woods that surround. Beautiful sunsets keep me going when I’m working overtime! As you will surely see, a lot of my work is inspired by nature and its beauty shines through.

Letterpress printing is a time consuming, careful, precise and verrrrrry long process that requires a great level of skill, craftsmanship and a whole heap of patience! I print using my trusty antique and vintage presses. They are my beautiful workhorses and they’re pieces of art in their own right! I have my very own German made 1940’s ‘Original Heidelberg’ press and my lovingly restored cast iron 1880’s Cropper Minerva foot operated platen press along with other ancillary machinery.
Johannes Gutenberg is said to have invented the first movable type printing press in the mid 15th century. We strongly feel that any successive modern printing process simply cannot match the tactile beauty of letterpress. Letterpress printing is distinctive and it’s instantly recognisable as something very special.
The papers are different, the designs themselves are different, the inks are different, the colours and the feel are different. It quite simply appears like no other printed form!
