Links + Resources

When I first started on my printmaking journey, I had a lot of questions. I tried to learn from YouTube videos and forums but I couldn't cut through the jargon to find the answers I needed.

My support came from other ladies of letterpress, who so generously shared their knowledge and recommendations with me out of the goodness of their heart. I have tried to do the same over the last five years, always sharing everything I can think of with my workshopees during and following workshops, and with beginner printers who have emailed looking for help.

Below I've listed all of my preferred suppliers, recommendations, further reading and anything else I think could be of help to you when learning to print at home.
