Hand Printed Cover Page
Next year see the 190th anniversary of the company printing in Diss. To celebrate this anniversary we have printed a limited edition 2020 calendar which have been selling fast and only a few remain.
The calendar is A4 in size and printed letterpress throughout on recycled board. The cover board has been hand inked and hand printed on the companies original Columbian Eagle Press and the twelve monthly pages featured 57 print passes to complete the job. As the cover is hand printed and various colour merging has been applied to the months each calendar is a one off. The firms historic wooden and metal type has been used in the production of the calendars.
Calendars are £20.00 including VAT, envelope and carriage to UK addresses and can be ordered from firstname.lastname@example.org
Watch out for future blogs on items produced during our 190th year.
Wishing all our customers and readers of this blog a Merry Christmas and a Happy 2020.

Cover 2019 Calendar
We are pleased to announce the completion of the limited edition Cupiss Letterpress 2019 Calendar. After much thought Richard and I decided to this year use a A4 format with dates in a grid leaving space for writing. The Calendar has the grid pattern Letterpress printed in Grey with 24pt Gill Sans hand composed date figures printed in black with Saturday and Sunday picked out in Red.
Each particular month header uses different wooden fonts dating back over 150 years and is printed in different colours and effects using our Heidelberg 10″ x 15″ Platen. Some months having two colours on the press at the same time to create a merging of colours meaning each Calendar printed is different from the previous or following print, in total there are 65 print passes on each calendar.
The material used is Cyclus Offset 100% Recycled 300gsm Board with a Greyboard backing and Red Antique Cover Paper printed in Silver. The calendars are finished with a notched wire binding with hangar and are available at £15.00 each including VAT plus p&p extra at cost only.
