We can print using a letter press method here in Australia or overseas. The turnaround time can be anywhere from 5- 30 days depending.
Due to the nature of the craft letterpress is a costly form of printing. Blocks need to be designed and made and then embossed onto the paper. This additional craftsmanship can add anywhere from 150% - 500% on top of what you would expect to pay for digital or offset work.
Letterpress is limited with the amount of colour that can be used. Generally a letter press product focuses on one or two colours only. Photos and full colour are better served with digital or offset printing.
