mrcup letterpressposters 01
Following the success of the letterpress calendar, I wanted to create a set of limited edition posters. As for the calendar, the concept is to create a typographic illustration based on an inspirational sentence about design or creativity.
This was made possible only as I collaborate with Jean-Christophe, the man behind Studio Pression. Since we met in 2013, a strong creative relation has begun: his passion and knowledge or the letterpress printing process push me above my creative skills. When I create to visual for this posters, I was not sure how much details could be printed and how it will look like at the end. The result is above my expectation and printed on 350 g cotton paper, the relief is impressive and the feeling of looking at your creation printed in letterpress is unique! The sound of this beast is amazing...
We set up 2 editions: black printing on 350 g white paper, and silver printing on 350 g black paper. Each design is limited to 100 prints, all hand signed. They are now available at

I also add some Rhine's Dice box set. Coming in a nice copper printed black box, each box includes 3 dices and instruction for trick ! Read a spectator’s mind using a pair of dice. Inspired by the tests performed in the 1930s by Dr. JB Rhine, Matt Mello has created a routine that will allow you to replicate psychic abilities.

As a I had a lot of message asking why the playing cards are not in the new Mr Cup shop, I had decided to restock them. To make everything clear, I do not design these cards, they are made by different Theory 11 or Dan & Dave, and design by worldwide designers such as Kevin Cantrell who design this year letterpress calendar front cover, Joe White who designed the 2015 one, Chad Michael and Jeff Trish. The Citizens, Contraband, Nomad, Makers and Sons of liberty are now available at the
