      The Counter Press is a London-based design studio and letterpress workshop. The studio specifically rejects today’s typical uses of letterpress printing for things like wedding invitations or business cards and it also doesn’t print from digital artworks. Instead they want to “work with writers, designers, brands and businesses who share our love of the exquisite and who are looking to create something beautifully unique. Whether it’s a branding and packaging project, a limited edition print, or a piece of original typographic artwork.”

The partnership now includes Richard Ardagh and Beatrice Bless, assisted by Angie Gough and Ian MacDonald. Their aim is to keep the craft of letterpress alive by teaching regular workshops to pass on the knowledge; working on commissioned projects for clients large and small; and producing their own print editions and books which they exhibit and sell in UK and Japan.
