About me

Location London, United Kingdom
Introduction A two pipe problem is a letterpress studio based in Walthamstow, East London, run by Stephen Kenny. A working graphic designer, Stephen lends his trained eye to create a new approach to the antique art of letterpress printing. Using a combination of old wooden type that is damaged and worn as well as a variety of metal type fonts lends an unpredictable and unique edge to the printing process. Wood type takes on a life of its own, each surface mark and imperfection offers a unique print. Take into account the variables and you find that no two posters look the same. This is all part of the charm of the letterpress printing of ‘a two pipe problem’. A two pipe problem is a modest but ambitious press happy to discuss any form of commission. From commercial to personal from one off wedding and baby name posters to larger print runs of posters and bespoke business cards.
