The good stuff 

WHETHER PRINTED OLD SCHOOL OR NEW SCHOOL, work from Lead Graffiti covers the hors catégorie as well as the more usual range of books, broadsides, certificates, and invitations.

When printing for you as the client, we typically use digitally-designed photopolymer plates to provide more typographic and image control for your project. Our personal work tends to be created with hand-set, antique wood and metal type. So, if you're after something more historically accurate, OR perhaps something contemporary with that letterpress je ne sais quoi, you'll find both options available at Lead Graffiti.

Good to know

PROJECTS WITH A SENSE OF PERMANENCE, where the piece is a keepsake, and where possession of it makes others feel connected to you, are ideal for letterpress, whatever your style or quantity, from one of a kind to a thousand or more copies.

Help us out?

WE'RE ALWAYS LOOKING for that next great portfolio-quality project, so if you have something off-beat or out of the ordinary in mind, we might be interested. Here are a few projects (in no particular order) that we would like to get a crack at:

  • limited production wine labels, coasters for a particular vintage or wine tasting at a regional winery or event, or maybe cool beer
  • main typography for a Vanity Fair article or Texas Monthly
  • gala invitation for the Museum of Modern Art or the Warhol Museum
  • a project with Stefan Sagmeister / Sagmeister & Walsh / NYC or Michael Johnson / Johnson Banks, London, or Weiden + Kennedy / anywhere

Contact us if you think you've got a contender that will at least get us closer to those goals.
