HELLO

I'm Christina Drummond (formerly Koot) and I'm a letterpress printer & graphic designer with a love for typography, travel and chocolate!

After graduating from Whanganui School of Design in 2012 with a Bachelor of Computer Graphic Design, I moved up to Auckland and found my place in the

world in a small design studio on the North Shore. For the last 3 years, alongside my design business named "Christina Koot", I worked for GTO Printers Ltd learning the fine art of letterpress printing. Because of this amazing opportunity, I have now gained the skills and knowledge needed to combine my creative design with the beautiful finishing touch of letterpress, so in 2015, I moved back to my home town of Palmerston North and renamed my business

Windmill Press - Letterpress & Design Studio.

 

I design and print wedding stationery, business cards, invitations, logos, custom type, and much more. I'm all about personalised, fresh, affordable design.

 

​Technology allows me to have clients all over New Zealand (and even the world!), So don't let distance be an issue, get in contact with me and let me be the one to design and print your next exciting idea!

SERVICES

Below is a list of the services I provide. If there is something that you are looking for that is not listed below, please feel free to get in touch with me as I may know somebody in the industry who can do it.

CUSTOM DESIGN

Wedding Stationery including but not limited to Save The Dates, Invitations, RSVP Cards, Menus, Place Name Cards, Information Cards, Seating Chart

and Table Numbers.

 

Other items include Business Cards, Baby Announcement Cards, Invitations, Logo's, Greeting Cards, Company Branding, Letterheads, Envelopes

and lots more.

 

LETTERPRESS

Printing from letters or type in relief. I have trays of lead type in a range of fonts & sizes. If you want something designed and printed made from traditional handset type, let me know, I am always keen to get back to where it all started.

 

DEBOSSING

The text and/or image is literally pressed into the paper creating a beautiful tactile three dimensional print. A blind deboss (an impression without ink)

can look very effective.

 

EMBOSSING

Similar to debossing but is the exact opposite effect. The text and/or image is pressed outwards producing a raised three dimensional print. Again, a blind emboss (raised text/image without ink) can look very effective.

 

HOT FOIL STAMPING

Foil stamping is similar to letterpress except it uses heat and foil instead of ink.

A heated die is applied onto metallic or pigmented foil then applied with pressure onto a solid surface making it permanently adhere to the surface below leaving the design of the dye.

 
 
DIE CUTTING

Cutting the paper or card into shapes using a die made with sharp steel edges. We can either use an existing die or I can have one made for you.

 

SCORING

Making a light impression, usually in the shape of a line, to be able to be folded easily eg greeting cards etc.

 

PERFORATING

Punch multiple holes along a line to be torn off later. This is good for receipt books, invoice books, ticket stubbs etc.

 

KISS-CUTTING

Similar to die cutting except we only cut through the top layer and leave the supporting material intact. This is basically used for creating sheets of multiple stickers to be peeled off later.
