The Art of Letterpress

Letterpress is the oldest method of printing, and even today’s letterpress designs are printed using antique presses. Because the process is so hands-on, with each color needing to printed separately and every piece of paper being fed individually, letterpress cards can be quite pricey – but oh so worth it! The result is an invite/card/poster that is a completely unique, work of art.

Here are a few of our favorites around the web…
