St Botolph’s Letterpress

St Botolph’s Letterpress is a community print workshop based in Colchester, Essex.

Centered around a Cropper & Charlton ‘Acme’ platen press, we are slowly acquiring more type, presses and other equipment through donations and loans.Our aim is to provide an open access facility providing education and inspiration for those interested in letterpress printing, as well as a functioning print room for existing practitioners to make use of.

We provide free bi-monthly talks and events, an annual exhibition showcasing letterpress work produced in the East Anglian region, and will soon be offering a membership scheme to allow members of the public to create their own print jobs, or take part in workshops and training.
