One ton of iron + a teaspoon of ink + the finest papers = one seriously BEAUTIFUL IMPRESSION with unsurpassed quality!
Letterpress printing is an age old print form invented in the mid-15th century, Letterpress is printing with metal plates, in which plates are inked and then PRESSED INTO THE PAPER to obtain a tactile printed image unlike any other print form. The process is tactile and mechanical, yet requires an astonishing amount of craftsmanship and talent to perfect.

On the same machine we also offer blind embossing / debossing as well as stamp foiling.
