Hello I'm Louise, owner / designer / printer for Chettlepress!
I was a digital designer for over 12 years, before I decided to take the plunge and start my own business doing something I really love - making things with my hands!
In mid 2020 I made my part time hobby of letterpress printing into my full time job. This career change (as well as having a baby) has meant a move back to Belfast where I grew up, and where I now work from my home studio. Recently I've added a 1960s Heidelberg Windmill printing press to the space, which has been a long held dream of mine!
My aim is to create beautiful handcrafted cards and stationery, that showcase the beautiful tactility of letterpress printing. I spend a lot of time sourcing sustainable and eco-friendly materials, and everything i make is with love, care and attention to detail! If you are interested in learning more, feel free to follow me on instagram or drop me any questions. I'd love to hear from you!
