Perrott Bespoke Printing in London has been in business since 1926 with four generations keeping die stamping, blind embossing and lithography alive. The printers has just released a short film to celebrate the family’s ongoing commitment to the trade…

“Being involved in the family business has always been something I have wanted to do,” says Catherine Perrott, a graphic designer and the daughter of the press’ current owner, Stephen Perrott.

“It is important to me to keep our tradition going, as well as the printing process itself. I’m currently being taught by my dad, trying to be as involved as I can in the business.”

“Everyone involved in the film feels that die stamping especially is a very beautiful and bespoke process which is slowly fading due to the rise of digital,” says Perrott. “We can only hope that this film helps to depict the skill and craftsmanship needed for a process like this and that it is important we stop it fading.”

Perrott Bespoke Printing has also produced a pack of stationery and print examples (including the cards featured in the film) which will be sent out in the coming months.

Director of photography: Guy Gotto. Original score: Evan Gildersleeve. Sound design: Greg Niemand. Graphic design: Catherine Perrott. Thanks to The Roundhouse & Stephen Perrott. Perrott Bespoke Printing is based at 2-4 Southgate Road, Islington, London N1 3JJ.
