letterpress in Kyoto


I joined workshop with waka, she is from Kyoto.
it was so fun to hear her story about letterpress things in Kyoto.
One is Jyuppun-ya. Her name cards made by Jyuppun-ya(10 min. shop) , Kyoto.
The old and quick letterpress printing shop, operatied by father and son.100 name cards are ready to go within 10 min.
second is Karafunr-ya. They closed letterpress division on March, 2009 because professional letterpress printers getting too old to continue their work anymore… Karafune-ya’s design work is marverous, so we still enjoy their screen print matters, other beautiful Japanese design 🙂
the last is Keibunsha. It is must visit, I know! but I heve no chance to get there so far.. They sell relly good stationaries and books, and have nice garelly, too. All they are located in Sakyo-ku, Kyoto.
