Renowned for their bespoke corporate and event stationery services, Barnard & Westwood produce a range of items, from letterheads and business cards to event invitations and tissue-lined envelopes. The workshop tours showcase a range of different print and binding techniques including die stamping, foil blocking, embossing, letterpress, gilding and book restoration. At the end of the tour, Barnard & Westwood’s bookbinding team will be foil blocking personalised notebooks for guests to take home with them.
