Department of cards, bookmarks and other letterpress prints.
The fiery cards with their quirky and/or caustic catchphrases are perfect for sending a sweet note to your mates, loved ones and comrades or for insulting your boss or the local alt-right.
Made with meticulousness and a bit of humour, the bookmarks of the Maison Loki Gwynbleidd allow you to find your way back to your reading of Pif Gadget or Nietzsche while displaying your struggles and protests.
Let's say it loud and clear: cards with 'inspirational' messages are shocking and disturbing. They are based on banalities and often on trivialized injunctions and oppressions.
Uninspiring cards are just the opposite and that's good.
Thanks to the know-how of the coypu-typographer, we will soon be able to offer you customised cards for your business (business cards) or personal use (announcements, personalised greetings, etc.). One day.
The printing department of the Anarchist and Vintage Propaganda has no less than six (6) different typefaces, all of them second-hand (or more). That's enough to insult the bourgeois, the fascists and other reactionaries.
Dies & cuts
The printing stamps used to decorate and embellish the letterpress prints have been selected with the greatest care on the basis of their availability (and their price too, we are not in the bourgeoisie here) in flea markets and sites of antique objects.
Furniture & Lego
The small printing equipment, especially the spaces, quads and furniture, is also second-hand. It is often supplemented by lego blocks, which give the printers a thrill but are still quite practical, it must be admitted.
All prints are made on the proofing press, a machine normally used for proofing. However, this type of press is very practical and is ideally suited for proofing and printing of fiery and uninspiring cartels.
“Sous la forme imprimerie, la pensée est plus impérissable que jamais ; elle est volatile, insaisissable, indestructible.” Victor Hugo
How letterpress prints are made.
Where other printers prefer to hide their creative processes (to create false suspense or make it look like the technique is not so easy), we choose honesty.
Through this animated imagery (by videographer) you can discover the method used to print cards and other ink products.
