What is Letterpress?

Follow

 

Letterpress is the oldest of the major printing processes. It uses a plate with fixed raised surfaces and pressure to apply ink to the material. This pressure also leaves a slight indent (or relief) in the paper.

As more cost-effective printing methods have been developed (such as Digital and Offset output), the usage of letterpress has declined greatly. However, the old-world charm of Letterpress has now become a highly sought-after look and feel.

Letterpress is a more labour intensive process (compared to Digital and Offset output), and hence premium and expensive service.

This specialty classic style output creates the most elegant pieces – perfect for wedding invites, special occasion flyers and premium business cards.
