Love, letters and Lettra is where it all began for D&d (Doug & Danika). Sharing a passion for design and all things touched by hand, we met at Sydney’s College of Fine Arts where our love for graphics and typography was born. Having a strong interest in craft practices, we both felt there was always something missing in digital media and print, which unknowingly at the time, spawned our fascination with old school printing methods. What started as a few beautiful old letters of wood type collected from a trip to Europe, blossomed into a full time obsession for all things letterpress.
D&d evolved into a full time passion after we found ourselves bidding on a 1920’s foot powered Chandler & Price printing press on which we printed our first project – our own wedding stationery. We have come a long way since its beginning in 2011, not only adding to our printing press collection but also welcoming some amazingly talented designers to our team. We now get to fill our days designing and printing uniquely crafted pieces for brides, designers and anyone else in need of stationery with soul.
We are a team of passionate people who specialise in letterpress & design in the form of beautifully crafted stationery, printed on antique printing presses. We admire the tactility of luxe paper to create to create beautiful pieces and are passionate about the smallest of details in every project. Our extensive range of papers and options cater for most project budgets, covering all your stationery requirements. We’d love to hear about your project so please get in touch!
