Can't is a Four Letter Word

A sweary collaboration between xforwhy and The Counter Press.

We wanted to mark an improbable (and unbelievable) first year in business by creating something special just for fun. So we teamed up with Elizabeth & David, the generous and talented souls behind the analogue heaven that is The Counter Press.

 They guided us patiently on a journey outside of our pixel-perfect comfort zones as we created this letterpress printed celebration of independent creative spirit.

Designed and letterpress printed by xforwhy and The Counter Press. Typeset by hand in 40-line and 6-line wood type and 9pt Monotype Grotesque 216. Printed on Fedrigoni Saville Row Dark Grey, size A2. Hand numbered in a limited edition of 25.




£45.00 (inc. postage & packing) - SOLD OUT!

All profits will be used to help set up a new organisation called RefYouMe, a community group solely focused on supporting grassroots refugee charities working on the ground in Calais.


UPDATE: thanks to all our supporters, the poster sold out in a couple of weeks. You raised €1,000 for refugees. With the help of RefYouMe, this money was donated to the Roots charity in Calais to build 2 new showers for people living in unimaginable conditions. THANK YOU.
