To print The Printed Peanut's Paper Doll's House in Great Britain by old fashioned spot-lithography.

About the project

The Printed Peanut is a small business founded by illustrator Louise Lockhart. She creates interactive paper products based on traditional toys and games and gives them a modern twist. Her Paper Doll's House is a folded printed card house, printed on both sides. It is a modern take on a classic doll's house, full of mid-century furniture like Ercol daybeds and Eames chairs. Louise's rich illustration is crammed full of details guaranteed to please art and design lovers. Each one comes complete with a sheet of paper people, pets and other additions to the house to cut out and stand inside.

They have proved popular over the last couple of years with people all over the world looking for a beautifully designed toy that can be played with or displayed like an art print. Until now Louise has had them digitally printed and assembles them by hand, after cutting and folding each one. The Printed Peanut's products are all made by small manufacturers in Britain, and Louise wants to use a wonderful printing co-operative in East London that uses old fashioned spot-lithography to print small runs of books and other products. The glowing colours of the hand-mixed inks give a look that can't be replicated by digital printing.

 The Printed Peanut has now over 50 stockists world wide and Louise hasn't got the time to hand-assemble each Paper toy, this is the perfect solution to keeping these wonderful toys made in Britain. Help Louise to raise enough money to cover the printing costs so she can get these sweet toys produced in a timeless and beautiful way. The retail price of these toys will be £10 each.
