    New Kids on the Block

    Cherry Press is now the newest addition to Chipping Campden’s vibrant high street – a creative letterpress studio and boutique specialising in bespoke stationery design and splendidly chic gifts and trinkets.

    Swing by the shop at Braithwaite House on the High Street to pick up some achingly cool writing materials, a cheeky greetings card or a statement print or two; but stay to order some bespoke letterpress business cards, printed for you by hand, smokin’ hot off the Heidelberg.

    Behind the shop is where the magic happens, where owner and master printer David Lewis keeps his studio. He’s in there all week, helping brides and grooms, aesthetics-savvy business folk and everyone in between to lay out their ideas in ink to create beautiful, timeless and ultimately memorable stationery for any occasion. “We are incredibly excited to bring our energetic business to the High Street” David says, reflecting on the shop’s opening over the May bank holiday weekend and his first few weeks of trading. “It has been amazing to have customers come in and browse the hand-picked gifts and stationery that we’ve carefully selected and created. I think we offer something truly unique, and if the boutique doesn’t have what you want, we are perfectly placed to start from scratch and create something totally bespoke!”

    Cherry Press has been operating in Chipping Campden for four years, and is completely devoted to practising letterpress the good old-fashioned way. Using lovingly maintained vintage presses and equipment and a vivacious palette of hand-mixed Pantone colour, David has provided countless betrothed couples and discerning paper-chasers with beautifully designed, and gorgeously tactile luxury paper goods. Now he has left his cosy little studio and upgraded to a shiny new shop that’s open to all for a browse, a friendly chat, a cup of tea and a superior stationery upgrade.

    For more information on the shop and the services Cherry Press has to offer, call in to Cherry Press, Braithwaite House, High Street, Chipping Campden, Gloucestershire, GL55 6HB, drop David a line on 01386 244150 or 07429 923497 or send him an email to hello@cherrypress.co.uk

    Opening Times 10:00am – 5:00pm Monday to Saturday, occasional Sundays and Bank Holidays.

    Cherry Press – The perfect print partner

    We were thrilled when Reesha from Pret a Papier got in touch. Pret a Papier offers personalised stationery and custom party printables in Dubai. Giving their clients themed parties a personal touch with printables customized to a parties theme colours or child’s name. products include; Customise cupcake toppers, invitations, gift tags, notecards and stationery.

    Reesha also produces the most exquisite bespoke wedding stationery. Your probably asking yourself, were did Cherry Press come in? Well, Reesha had designed a full suite of wedding stationery consisting of wedding invitations, gift correspondence and rsvp’s but her clients wanted them to be a little different from your modern digital print. With this in mind Reesha went on the hunt for alternative print methods.

    After trawling the internet she finally stumbled across Letterpress, with its tactile finish and no limit on the thickness of paper which can be used, Reesha new this was what her clients were looking for.Reesha then searched the length and breadth of Dubai in search of a Letterpress print partner but with no Letterpress studios to be found, she targeted studios further a field and stumbled across us. From the moment Reesha got in touch we hit it off, and I supose you could say the rest  is history.

    The stationery was printed on a 425gsm board throughout with the invitations printed in two colour and both the RSVP’s and Gift correspondence being printed in one colour.

    Telegram save the dates

    We were so pleased when Warren and Emma approached Cherry Press to help them produce their save the dates for their forthcoming wedding. With Warren coming from a creative background and having already handled the creative element they were looking for a letterpress print partner who could bring their design to life.

    As soon as we saw the design we were excited, and after listening to Warren and Emma’s ideas on colour palette, we soon decided on a hefty 700gsm GF Smith Colorplan Duplex sheet, with a combination of Azure blue and Bright white. For the ink colours we decided on Cool grey 8 for the face and Pantone 643 for the reverse. So we got mixing then printing and we were all thrilled with the results.

    we’ve found her!

    Here at Cherry Press, we just can’t wait for the arrival of our new Letterpress.

    We are lucky enough to have come across this Arab Letterpress, which is due to arrive in the studio later on this month. After a full strip down we will be bringing her back to her original condition and getting her back to what she was made for; Creating beautiful letter-pressed stationery.
