Francis Cupiss Ltd

Francis Cupiss Ltd was formed in 1830 and moved to its current premises in 1874. We still have our original Wooden and Metal Type with additional fonts added over the ensuing years. We have a Columbian Eagle Press (our first press) Heidelberg Platens, a A4 size Hand Platen and a Farley Proofing Press. Along with the various Letterpress Jobs our clients ask us to complete we offer Letterpress Experience Days where visitors can have instruction and print something of their choice on one of our presses, this could be anything from Wedding Invitations to 20” x 30” Posters. Although we are required to use modern technology to “print to make a living” when we have the time we endeavour to create Letterpress Prints using our historic equipment to promote the “Letterpress Ideals”.
