*pur-ple - add your free link here is an exciting new collaboration of artists and publishers connecting together with their updates, views & advice on greetings cards + design.

*pur-ple has evolved from my blog. I have great fun running an online shop sourcing new and unusual greetings cards from talented artists and decided to take the next step and change my existing blog into *pur-ple.

*pur-ple aims to become a source of updates, views & advice for greetings cards artists, illustrators, designers, publishers & those who also love greetings cards and great design! *pur-ple also aims to help promote them too.

If you would like to be included in *pur-ple's free directory of artists & publishers then please contact me by leaving your website / shop / store / blog link in the comments box below and I will be delighted to add your link here on *pur-ple! (Please kindly link back to *pur-ple too & follow us here and on Twitter!)

Thank you, Louise

  19. All added :) ... I really enjoy reading LETTERPRESS IN THE UK. I have a far too many Adana's and far too little time to play with them! Must make time! I have a wonderful flatbed... which desperately needs my attention!

  20. Thanks Louise - letterpress is a time consuming :) so many ideas and not enough time... If you're ever think of parting with your flatbed, pleas do let me know :) jax x

  21. Hi Jax, Last count I had five presses including a baby Adana and two goccos!!! At the moment I'm desperate to get my hands on my sorry looking flatbed... it arrived covered in purple ink! (of all colours!) and it needs a really good clean! Its been sat in a box for a couple of years now. Poor thing! But., sadly no I'm not ready to part with it!

    I do have some Adana parts that I do need to get rid of if anyone is interested though?

  22. I don't know anyone who needs any, British Letterpress has a free classified listing you can post to :)
    Purple ink :) you'll have to leave some on for luck! Happy printing
    Jax x
