If you have been following TAE for a while, you probably know I’m a huge fan of graphic design and typography, as I am a graphic designer myself. I recently discovered an “old school” yet modern letterpress studio based in North Wales, UK, called Blush.

While in today’s day and age, it’s easy to dismiss print media since everything’s gone digital. Greeting cards, letters, invitations, business cards, even books and posters – you name it and there’s most likely a digital counterpart. I still believe print is alive, and Blush is living testament to that.

Blush specializes in bespoke (custom-made) letterpress printing services. Companies such as theirs keep me inspired. Not only are their works gorgeous, but specialty prints such as theirs can make any business or brand stand out from the competition.

I don’t know about you, but I think there’s something more authentic about a brand that invests in things such as business cards and print ads. I think they’re more serious about whatever products or services they sell. Same with hand-held invitations – I would be more excited to go to weddings and special events if they sent me a card via snail mail if I saw there was massive effort put into the invitation, as opposed to the convenience of invites sent through social media.

It’s not just those, too. I’ve seen Blush create things such as bottle labels, unconventional packaging, line art and typography posters, calendars, and many more. Take a look at some TAE favs from the Blush portfolio and see what I mean:
