Aloha Letterpress at Made in Maui County Festival

My Aloha Letterpress booth minutes before the opening of the Made in Maui County Festival at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center in Kahului on Saturday, Nov. 8. Thank you to all who stopped by to visit! I wish I could have brought my antique printing presses, but they were much too heavy. 

More Made in Maui County Festival

Thousands of visitors and locals attend the inaugural Made in Maui County Festival held on November 8 at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center.

The first Made in Maui County Festival was a marvelous event with about 9,000 island visitors and locals attending on November 8.

Despite the showers, a line of people stretched along the sidewalk and down the street as they waited for the gates to open at 8 a.m.

Thanks to the coordination and support of the County of Maui Mayor's Office of Economic Development and the Maui Chamber of Commerce, this first festival featuring a wonderful array of Maui County goods was a fabulous event!  Mahalo nui loa to

Personalized Letterpress Stationery Tropical Fronds

New letterpress printed stationery with blue tropical fronds and a marvelous distinctive font.

You can almost hear and picture Elvis singing "Blue Hawaii" as he drifts down the the river. What tropical charm! These personalized letterpress stationery feature beautiful deep blue fronds and a wonderful all caps font. I printed the deep blue fronds first on plush 100% cotton card stock and then followed it up by hand setting the metal type and then printed the name.  Each card is printed one card at a time using my antique printing presses. By using my metal type, no dies need to be processed to have a name plate made. This means prompt printing and quick delivery for you. 

Sometimes, clients will have customized images and special fonts they want. This also can be done and letterpress plates will be ordered. This takes about 3-4 days for me to receive them and then I can print.

Awesome Ampersand Letterpress Prints Personalized

These new letterpress prints feature awesome ampersands customized with your names. Ampersands have such unique beautiful qualities, each with its own special character.  The origin of the word, ampersand, evolved from the words "and" and the words "per se" and the symbol is derived from the Latin "et" that translates as "and."  The history of the ampersand can be traced back as far as 49 A.D. and has evolved over time with many variations adding to its typographical beauty.
