By using the collection of antique metal and wood type in the studio and creating custom nyloplates, Windmill Press designs and prints unique wedding stationery the old fashioned way, with vintage presses, the best paper, time, patience, and a whole lot of love. Letterpress printing gives a beautiful, three-dimensional impression in paper unsurpassed by any other print method. We are all about combining the old with the new and seeing and feeling the deep impression that is 21st century letterpress.
The owner, Christina Drummond, is a Graphic Designer and Letterpress Printer. After graduating from Whanganui School of Design in 2012 with a Bachelor of Computer Graphic Design, she moved up to Auckland and found her place in the world in a small design studio on the North Shore. From 2012-2015, alongside her design business formerly named “Christina Koot”, she worked for a printing company learning the fine art of letterpress printing. Because of this amazing opportunity, she had now gained the skills and knowledge needed to combine her creative design with the beautiful finishing touch of letterpress. So in 2015, she moved back to her home town of Palmerston North, renamed the business Windmill Press - Letterpress & Design Studio and never looked back.
