Archivist was founded in 1994 by Sarah and William Allardice to offer the highest quality Letterpress printed cards and stationery.
Prior to running Archivist, Sarah had a career with a prominent British stationery brand while William arrived via a roundabout route through the design department of Wedgwood and some time selling racehorses to people in Japan. However their vision was consistent—that Archivist would offer high quality letterpress products that never lose their sense of fun.
Sarah and William firmly believe that letterpress remains the best form of printing available and everyone at Archivist works hard to ensure it continues in its role as the unequivocal home of UK letterpress printing.
Archivist uses the traditional letterpress printing technique to create its range of cards and stationery. Founded in 1994 by Sarah and William Allardice, the brand aims to create timeless pieces that imbue a sense of fun, as well as being useful. Archivist’s luxury matches come in printed boxes that double as keepsakes themselves, making them an ideal gift, whilst the charming designs on their greeting cards offer universal appeal. Some of London’s finest museums back the brand; the V&A are a stockist and the Natural History Museum commissioned its own collection.
