The Olde Press Prints of London sells items once used in printing, including lead type, wood letters, typecases, wood letter collages, and alphabet sticks.  All of our products were once used in printing presses, most of them dating back to the late 1800s. 


I also make and sell copper and brass printing blocks.  The block image itself is metal and it is attached to a wooden block.  The stamps are designed to be printed by hand.  Besides using them on paper for correspondence or art work, they can also be used on clay or ceramic pottery and on cloth or leather.  Embossing and wax seals are also very popular applications of these printing blocks. 



Lots of people that are organizing weddings and christenings use my blocks to customize their invitations/announcements with a really handmade feel.  Another use for my blocks, is to display them as art.  A typical customer will come on to my booth and grab a type case and fill it with lead type, wood letter and images that are specific to the person they are buying it for.  Making something unique for them to hang on their walls.


Our Mission

To provide people with an artistic way to express them selves and keep in touch with a historic art form.
