Wilkintie is the brainchild of a creative Melbourne couple Carly Hargreaves and Niels Oeltjen. The project evolved from their love of letterpress printing and a desire to collaborate with amazing and well loved contemporary artists and illustrators from around the world.
Niels Oeltjen, himself is a wonderful illustrator and painter better known as Nails. Carly Hargreaves has a history in contemporary dance and, more recently, publishing.
Pictured here is a tantalising selection of their beautifully crafted letterpress artworks, all of which are available in their online store (top to bottom – Niels Oeltjen, Apak and Tim Biskup)... Gosh, what a line up! Be sure to click on the link to see more fabulous artists.
So pretty…. These lovely handmade notecards and paper goods are by Brisbane architect and interior designer Steffen Tuck. She uses a range of techniques such as rubber stamping, machine stitching, embossing, screen and lino printing on new and recycled papers to create her multi layered style.

You can find these very sweet hand printed timber Christmas cards at the red thread. They are individually made by Sydney artist Lisa Tilse who also creates one-off and limited edition artwork and really wonderful commissioned children’s portraits. Just a word of advice -since the commissions take weeks to generate, it’ll be a good idea to get in early before the Christmas rush!!
While we’re on the theme of Japanese influence, here are some cool 3D cards by Andrea Innocent and can be found from her online shop innocent girl. Andrea is an artist/illustrator/animator/designer living and working from Melbourne.
It’s been a while since our last entry so let’s kickstart 2008 with a bit of fun from an Etsy legend Magic Jelly Emporium . Created by Karena Colquhoun who is an Adelaide based illustrator, artist & designer, Magic Jelly delivers a wonderful array of vintage style paper goods, drink coasters, pocket mirrors and limited edition artwork. Mixed with a fine eye for retro graphic detail and dose of good humour, her work blurs the line between past and present. We love her super cheeky character drink coasters and pocket mirrors (as pictured here).
Have a peek at tsk tsk for some cheerful folk art inspired limited edition prints, dolls and other crafty bits. The range of goodies are made by Tiel Seivl-Keevers, an artist and illustrator from Brisbane.
I love trawling through Etsy and discovering great gems. Apart from all the handmade jewellery and accessories you can find, it’s also a place to uncover amazing artists, illustrators and graphic designers.

It’s always special when receiving an invitation or card by post, but wouldn’t it be even more wonderful if you got one of these handcrafted beauties made by Chapel Press? They make delightfully romantic letterpress stationery ranging from custom invitations & greeting cards through to corporate branding. We love the detailed classy designs and the combination of rich ink colours pressed onto white cotton paper to create texture and depth.

This is a bit left of field posting about a wedding related designer- but whose to say we can’t!? For exquisite wedding stationery and bomboniere, you can’t go past Angels Dreaming. They custom design to your style of wedding and all are handmade with a great attention to detail.
It looks like the two ladies from Hammer and Daisy have been very busy indeed! Formed by Gracia Haby and Louise Jennison, they have been creating handmade journals, pouches and pencil cases for a few years now. They also produce a prolific amount of illustrations, some of which are put into limited edition artist books. Seeing the huge amount of work on display on their site, I wonder how they have enough time to sleep! Puts me to shame! You can also buy many of their products from their Online Shop
