THE VINTAGE CRAFT OF LETTERPRESS PRINTING


Letterpress printing is a labour of love and such a beautiful craft. It is a traditional hands-on printing technique that requires lots of time and patience to get the print just right. The process uses relief printing plates, where a raised surface is inked with a roller and then pressed into the paper making a debossed impression. The result is a print that engages your senses; not only do you see the print, you can also touch and feel it.

IMPRESS WITH SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL


MAGVA Design + Letterpress is a boutique letterpress design and print studio based in the centre of Ireland specialising in crafting beautiful wedding invitations, stationery for all occasions and commissioned prints.

HANDCRAFTED WITH BEAUTIFUL COTTON PAPERS

We take great pride in lovingly handcrafting and printing your letterpress wedding stationery the old fashioned way on our antique letterpress’s. To ensure that your wedding stationery makes the right first impression we only print onto beautiful 100% cotton papers that are luxuriously soft, pillowy and give a beautiful letterpress impression. To complement these letterpress papers, we supply matching 100% cotton envelopes as standard with all our wedding invitations and rsvps.

LUXE BOHEMIAN WEDDING INSPIRATION

Autumn can be such a beautiful time of year with the soft sun and vibrant colours that it brings. This coupled with the wild and natural beauty of the outdoors was the inspiration for a photo shoot by Amber from Styled by Amber that I was involved with this time twelve months ago.

Today I am delighted to share with you the breath taking and stunningly beautiful wedding of Grace and Paul which I had the pleasure of creating some bespoke stationery for. This intimate wedding took place early last summer at the spectacular Crom Castle on Lough Erne in Northern Ireland, was planned and styled by the amazingly talented Pearl and Godiva, and the occasion was captured through the lens of Peaches and Mint.

It is hard to believe that three months have passed since I anxiously awaited the arrival of BASH Vol. 3. Not only is it one of my favourite wedding magazines, but this issue featured a wedding which I hand printed letterpress wedding stationery for.

HUGS & KISSES

Where do I begin with Antonella and MAGVA Design + Letterpress? From the moment I attempted to articulate what it was we wanted it was as though she read our minds! She just got it! Not only that, but she came back with suggestions and designs that way exceeded our expectations. Her attention to detail, her presentation, her efficiency (at any hour of the night!), her obvious love for what she does and her understanding of the significance every aspect of the prep is for a bride was amazing! We wanted our invitations to set the tone for the day celebrating our love of Co Clare, the location and all it has to offer and Antonella went above and beyond in terms of research and design in order to achieve that. The result was incredible and the response from our guests so special. It was the first impression of a weekend John and I are very proud of and we think it was the perfect fit.

Thank you so much Antonella.

Gorgeous stationery was always important to me, so in Antonella, of MAGVA Design + Letterpress, I met a kindred spirit. She designed and printed perfect menus, place cards and mood signage, all expressing our design aesthetic and personality, using textural cotton paper and showing the most expert artisanal skill.

The whole experience of working with you was a pleasure. On so many occasions you went above and beyond. You were helpful, patient, reliable, calm, understanding and really made the whole process so easy for us. And then on top of all that the invites are amazing!
