Letterpress Printing

What is Letterpress Printing?

Letterpress is an ancient printing art form and one which is making a real revival. Artisan producers using huge iron presses to create embossed images onto thick card and paper. Letterpress printing is truly the most beautiful craftsmanship.

Is Letterpress Printing a good choice for my project?

A few factors need to be considered when choosing letterpress printing for your stationery:

Firstly, time!

We can print using a letter press method here in Australia or overseas. The turnaround time can be anywhere from 5- 30 days depending.

Secondly, cost!

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% ontop of what you would expect to pay for digital or offset work.

Thirdly, design!

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.


That said, Letterpress products are a beautiful choice. 

Letterpress printing is unlike any other type of printing.  Printed 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.
