The Art of Letterpress

Letterpress printing is a type of printing in which the raised surface of the type is inked and then pressed against a smooth substance to obtain an image in reverse.

Letterpress is also very costly. Why? First, it is challenging to print multi-colors as most equipment prints only one color at a time. Second, this printing process is less precise than offset printing and takes a skilled printer to overcome printing issues.

Enough talk....Here are some of my favorite Letterpress:

The above two are from Sarah Drake in Chicago. I used her and her beautiful grass design for my wedding invites.

Hello Lucky also has beautiful invites. They even sell their letterpess at Costco for 25% off!

Good on Paper is another one of my favorites.
