Nick Loaring has been printing since his first experiments with a photocopier aged 13. Following a youth producing fanzines and an art college education, alongside much time spent skateboarding and making music, he became a graphic designer. His love for letterpress started in the late 1990s when he stumbled across some vintage wooden type in a shop in North Yorkshire.
In 2010 Nick founded The Print Project, a letterpress printing business in Shipley, West Yorkshire. His work features in a variety of publications and is held in the permanent collections of The Tate, London Centre for Book Arts and UWE Centre for Fine Print Research. Nick is Co-Publisher of Double Dagger magazine, a broadsheet printed by letterpress on a Heidelberg SBB Cylinder Press using type that has been machine set on a Monotype Composition Caster.
