Letterpress printing is a very old technology that offers great warmth and depth to the printed pieces. It is a technique of relief printing using a printing press, and a process by which many copies are produced by repeated direct impression of an inked, raised surface against sheets.

Johannes Gutenberg is credited with the development in the western hemisphere, in about 1440, of modern movable type printing from individually cast, reusable letters set together in a form (frame or chase).

Not only does the letterpress print inks but it has a myriad of other enhancements as well such as:

  • Foiling

  • Numbering

  • Scoring

  • Die Cutting

  • Imprinting on preprinted masters

  • De-Boss

  • Emboss

  • Very wide choice of paper weight

Benefits of letterpress printing are:

  • The ability to print truly unique pieces

  • Soy inks
