We are proud to open our factory doors to showcase traditional printing, hand finishing, and bookbinding at its finest. Our luxury stationery gift experience is aimed at print and bookbinding lovers from all over the world who appreciate the art of putting pen to paper. Join our talented team for a guided tour of the Barnard & Westwood workshop and design your own bespoke personal stationery set.
Upon arrival at Barnard & Westwood guests will be given a guided tour and learn all about the different creative processes at work and see our expert printers and bookbinders in action. We specialise in many different printing techniques including digital printing, lithographic printing, foil blocking, die stamping and thermography, all of which will be on display.
The tour will culminate in the bindery where guests will receive their very own set of 3 x Barnard & Westwood notebooks personalised using a traditional hot foil press and lead type.
Once back in the office, sit down with a member of our experienced team for a bespoke consultation to create your personalised stationery set which will include:
- 50 x Letterheads
- 50 x Correspondence Cards
- 100 x Tissue-Lined Envelopes
All of the stationery included in the set is printed using the exquisite refined printing technique of die stamping (engraved printing). This method produces a raised effect on the finished text and is renowned for its depth of colour and definition.
There are many different options to choose from when selecting your stationery including paper texture, paper colour, font type, font colour and tissue lining colour. However, if more bespoke features, additional copies or extra stationery items (such as visiting cards) are required, we will be happy to provide an additional quote following the gift experience for any extra work.
We look forward to welcoming you to our workshop soon!
