You may think that we just slap a load of cheek on a card and that’s it. But there’s a method and a passion behind what we do. Typography, design and a love of linguistics is what makes us tick.
Founder, owner, and head-honcho Bec has a longstanding interest in print. Typography has been her thing for a long time. DYP started out as a Letterpress printing studio, using mainly vintage wood type. The artwork created for all our products is based on a 1940s wooden type from Germany. And Bec’s more than a bit nerdy about paper. Oh yes, it has to be the right paper, not just any old card stock!
Our cards and prints are inspired by the centuries-old craft of letterpress printing. We love the beautify qualities of that traditional print.
So, you may focus on the cheeky message, but we’ve spent hours selecting the right paper, and the right printer. We’ve designed unique and individual fonts. We’ve spent time getting the layout just right. We’ve chosen the colours carefully. Add luxury, traditional crafts, and a hefty dose of rude and what you get is DYP. We love what we do!
