Letterpress printing is a luxurious printing method that leaves a physical impression in the paper. First, a plate is made of your design. Then, your ink color of choice is rolled onto the plate by an antique letterpress machine. Finally, the machine presses the plate into your paper leaving the ink impression behind.
Letterpress is great for line art like a venue illustration or vintage monogram!
The drawback to letterpress is that it is much more expensive than digital printing. Each ink color used has to have its own plate, and the plates can be pretty pricey.
By the way, this is my favorite printing method! The pillowy impression is absolutely stunning to see and feel. The process is centuries old. So, you can guarantee it’s not going to go out of style!
