The Alphabet Press (TAP) is a bespoke letterpress stationery company that is pioneering the letterpress print renaissance in Malaysia. Lending ourselves to nostalgia with a contemporary twist, we are a team of artists and designers with an aim to create intricately unique letterpress work that pushed the proverbial envelope.
Driven by desire, we ventured on ‘the road less travel’ and gradually built a reputable name for ourselves with a strong belief in creating earnest tactile letterpress stationery and prints solely with passion and much perseverance.
3 years back, we fell head over heel for letterpress. 3 years later, we married our passion to it. Everything started with a beautiful matrimony of solid friendship and the spirit to create. Creativity has always been part of us as our roots were mainly from the digital world with steady professions as web designers, photographers and videographers. Despite the artistic venture, we felt that we were missing the hands-on and tangible components of design. It was then the idea of reviving letterpress came into form – an opportunity to fill in our void. Designing and manufacturing a product not only gives us the freedom to explore our creative fantasies but also witnessing the making of what we can truly call our own.
We began the journey with a purpose — It is to preserve, revive the centuries-old craft of letterpress, and to make it relevant again in the modern society.
We believe the making of a great product comes purely from the heart and soul. Our sincere hope is to leave a deep impression in the hearts of many Malaysian with our letterpress stationaries that are created in-house by a passionate team of craftsmen with an eye for intricate beauty. Our products undergo a notoriously rigorous process that requires intensive manual labour but bears an exceptionally gorgeous and unique touch to any printed goods.
