ELLIE PRESS was set up in 2013 by Emma and operates out of her home studio in Weston Turville, Buckinghamshire. It was named after the little red Adana 8 X 5 which thumped card stock like a baby elephant and was dragged out to craft fairs and even into the local school to teach children about printing.
All of the printing today is carried out by Betsy, a foolscap folio Arab Platen (13 X 9 chase) that had been owned by a retired hobby printer and just needed a little TLC. She was restored by Logan Press to the working condition she is in today. The number 2921 stamped into Betsy indicates she was made circa 1895, a real piece of history!
Emma's passion for drawing means that she is able to create bespoke artwork that really means something to her wedding clients from beautiful venue illustrations to elements that tie in to the couples overall theme
