Poppykate PressBespoke wedding and social stationery, unique poster prints and other paper goods
Kathryn Atkinson, owner of Poppykate Press, handcrafts bespoke wedding and social stationery, unique poster prints and other paper goods, reviving traditional letterpress techniques and using reclaimed vintage printing equipment.
Kathryn’s passion for creating exquisite paper products began when she made her own wedding stationery back in 2001. Since then, she has gone on to design and create bespoke wedding stationery suites for numerous couples as well as unique invitations for many other special occasions. She loves getting to know her clients and working with them to create designs that reflect and convey their style and personality. Visit the Poppykate Press studio at The Fold to see a selection of previous projects and to book a free initial consultation with Kathryn to discuss your requirements.
As well as bespoke stationery and personalised correspondence suites, Kathryn makes limited edition linocut and letterpress prints, posters, stationery and greeting cards, ideal for that special occasion, unique piece of artwork for your home or for a one-of-a-kind special gift.
Eco-friendly materials and processes are at the heart of everything that Kathryn creates. All letterpress stationery is printed on “Harold”, her 1878, half ton treadle platen press or on other manually powered presses. Her collection of antique wooden and metal type thankfully escaped being skipped or melted down when modern printing methods took over in the 1970s. She also uses recycled, tree-free and FSC Approved papers and non-toxic ink from British, family run operations.
Kathryn also offers workshops in linocut printing, letterpress printing and shibori indigo fabric dyeing. Contact her for details.
