Welcome to the Lucky Duck Press blog!
To start, an introduction:
Lucky Duck Press is our letterpress print shop. We print wedding invitations, social stationery, personal or business announcements, and much more. Much of what we print is custom work and we really love chatting with our clients to come up with the best piece of printed matter for their needs. Examples of past projects as well as standard “off-the-shelf” products can be found on our website: www.luckyduckletterpress.com or in our Etsy shop: www.luckyduckletterpress.etsy.com.
Lucky Duck Press aims to bring a slightly older-fashioned sensibility back to modern communications, creating paper goods that embody a bit of retro whimsy or just a highly personalized style, and showcase handcrafted, artisinal production. Lucky Duck is a direct descendant of Patrick’s great-grandfather’s business started in 1901, The Sterling Press of Winsted, CT, but more on that later.
This blog is intended to share the goings on at Lucky Duck Press but, more importantly, to be a source of information on letterpress printing, wedding planning, and all manner of stationery and printed matter. We’ll probably get into a bit of typography and graphic design as well.
As we post, please feel free to contact us with questions either via email or in the comments and we will try to be diligent about answering.
Thanks for reading! Stay tuned for more!
Patrick and Alessandra Barrett
