Product of the Week – Tweedle Press

By | January 28, 2010

GiftTags DeadThingsBeastTweedle Press is a full-service design, papermaking, and letterpress print shop that uses eco-friendly materials while still creating stylish, quirky paper goods.

Everything about Tweedle Press is Green – including their paper, inks, packaging, & even electricity.

Paper – Tweedle Press uses a wide array of 100% recycled paper fibers & 100% recovered cotton rag.  Sometimes adding dried flowers, spices, textures, and other random materials.

Inks – Tweedle Press inks are combination of hand mixed vegetable ink colors and pre-mixed linseed oil based etching inks with a high pigment degree.

Packaging – Tweedle Press packaging materials are also as low impact as possible, meaning recycled boxes, hemp twines, etc.

Electricity – Tweedle Press is almost entirely hand-powered. Electricity is necessary for computer design and plate making, but all of the actual pressing is hand-cranked.

Tweedle Press is really fun & funky. I just love that they take junk mail and up-cycle it into invites, RSVP’s, placecards, nametags, menus, programs, stationery, business cards & much more.
