Typeprints are typographical artworks created individually on a commission basis. They are typically used to celebrate a special occasion or life event.
The overwhelming majority of our commissions are purchased as gifts by people looking for something original and unusual to give friends or relatives. Typeprints make great birthday presents, are frequently used as housewarming gifts and work well as wedding presents for the increasing number of couples who feel they already have sufficient coasters and toasters by the time they get married. They're also often used to immortalise a family joke, a favourite quote or lyric - or anything else that clients may choose.
Typically Typeprints omit the conventional spaces between words, and the characters are run together. This creates an effect which is both absorbing and intriguing as the viewer takes a moment or two to decipher the meaning of the text. This technique is not mandatory however, and spaces can of course be added in the usual format.
Typeprints use optimistic, bright and joyful colours which can be tailored or softened, according to the environment is which the print will be hung.
So your design will be tailored specifically to you - your words, beautifully rendered and personalised by our designers. Below are some examples of Typeprints we have produced in the past.
