Reykjavik Letterpress party!

I had so much fun visiting Ólöf and Hildur at Reykjavík Letterpress yesterday when they opened their workshop to guests. We were allowed to experiment with the old printing technique letterpress, putting together words and sentences and watching them come alive with the help of the original Heidelberg printing machine which has been given the name Helga. I´ve blogged about Reykjavík Letterpress and one of their products here, but at their workshop I saw so many beautiful examples of their work. Wedding-, christening- or party invitations, business cards and colorful party decorations. Hildur and Ólöf are both graphic designers with a strong passion for the letterpress technique and that passion shines through in their work.
