Hello, I'm Amanda, a designer and letterpress printer working from my home studio in the peaceful rural area of Plummers Point in Tauranga, New Zealand.
I have been working as a designer for 20 years (gosh that sounds like a long time) and in 2014 I finally took proud possession of a vintage 1902 Chandler & Price printing press. Lovingly restored by a very talented man, I just love tinkering away and getting to know all of it's little quirks that make letterpress printing such a joy. Letterpress brings together my passions for modern design and the traditional craft of mixing inks and selecting luxurious papers to create something beautifully tactile.
After working for many years in the corporate design world I love the freedom of working from home and spending precious time with my family. I always have new ideas flying around my head and when I get a chance some of these get created and you can find them in my shop.
