About Nibu Letterpress



Nibu letterpress is a responsible printing studio that cares for the environment. Here are some examples of our eco- friendly practice:

  • The beautiful papers we print on are FSC* accredited, cotton-based and non acid. We love to print on cotton paper, not only because of it’s softness and perfect qualities for letterpress, but also because it is a sustainable and renewable resource.
  • Printing with Rubber-based and oil-based inks both have 20-30% vegetable-oil (soy and linseed).
  • Using equipment (presses, types, furniture…) that had been restored or bought second hand.
  • Reusing packaging wherever possible.
  • Cleaning the inks using vegetable oil and Zest cleaner. A more environmentally friendly, non-flammable, biodegradable alternative to ‘turps’ and white spirit, made using the zest of citrus fruit avoiding harsh chemicals.
    *’FSC’ stands for Forest Stewardship Council, an organization that works to promote the practice of sustainable forestry worldwide.

Nibu Letterpress is open to ideas from our customers. However the printing process works with specific requirements. We will need to see if your ideas /images are suitable for printing. Quotes are available upon request.

Due to the nature of letterpress and because it is a handmade process done on antique printing presses, each print is unique. No two prints are entirely identical, therefore subtle variations in inking, colour, impression and position are to be expected. You may also notice that when choosing a wooden font there may be marks or tiny dented corners… All of these is part of the letterpress charm, and we love it!
