Letterpress printing Sydney

Letterpress printing and design Sydney

Letterpress printing is unlike any other type of printing. Printed and embossed into thick, fluffy and cotton-like uncoated paper stocks, letterpress printing really gives you a tactile experience with a classic feel. Paired with great design, letterpress printing really makes a fantastic impression – especially on your business cards, invitations and stationery. It's something your customers or guests will definitely want to hold onto! 

We have a professional in-house printing section - Love Paper - that focuses on speciality printing techniques including letterpress printing, printing with speciality inks, foils and embellishments. Love Paper is an experienced team of creative designers who can provide unique printed designs for all your wedding or event needs. 

Unlike our competitors, we offer bespoke letterpress printing of cards and invitations, without the need to choose from templates and wait 2-3 weeks. We also supply full colour digital printing with foils and embossing, combining the traditional craftsmanship of letterpress printing with the modern ease of digital printing.

Is letterpress printing a good idea for my project?

A few factors need to be considered when considering letterpress printing as part of your printing mix: 

  • Firstly, time! We can print using a letterpress method here in Australia or overseas. The turnaround time can be anywhere from 5-30 days depending on the budget and time allowances. 
  • Secondly, cost! Due to the labour-intensive nature of letterpress is a more 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 printing. 
  • Thirdly, design! Letterpress is limited in the amount of colours that can be used. Generally a letterpress product focusses on one or two colours only. Photos and full colour are better served with digital or offset printing. Furthermore, the presses require designs to have a minimum size or width to them in order to make the impressions distinct. If you're not sure if your design is going to work for letterpress, call to chat to us about what's possible. We always help tailor designs to ensure the letterpress result is the best possible. 

Letterpress paper stock options

Letterpress papers are normally uncoated paper stocks (a paper without a shiny coating on it) that need to be a certain thickness to accomodate the letterpress impressions. Letterpress papers come in a range of thick 600gsm uncoated papers, from off-white natural looking paper through to bright whites, warm whites and natural white papers with great textures that complement the overall tactile feel.
