The story behind Mostly Flat
Mostly Flat specialises in hand printed paper goods for you and your home. Created by artist, designer and letterpress aficionado, Dulcie Fulton, Mostly Flat is a letterpress design and print studio based in the beautiful medieval town of Ludlow in Shropshire.
A relief printing process which involves working with hand-set wood and metal type or image blocks, letterpress was the main form of printing for 500 years until offset printing started to take over in the 1950s. Now an artisan craft, the letterpress prints and goods made by Mostly Flat offer tactile results that modern printing techniques can't provide.
Each and every one of Mostly Flat's items are hand-set and hand-printed by Dulcie herself in her workshop, from greetings cards to prints, from business and correspondence cards to special commissions. Each piece is made with great care and attention.
Wherever possible Dulcie chooses recycled and FSC certified paper to minimise Mostly Flat's impact on the environment.
When she's not printing, nor hunting down new acquisitions, Dulcie teaches the fundamentals of letterpress printing to individuals or small groups. She also co-founded and organises The Eclectic Sofa, a twice-monthly casual get-together for local creative folk.
