Letterpress is a traditional method of printing that offers spectacular results–for artwork that predominantly features type and line art. The impact of the press leaves a subtle emboss on all of the type. Blind embosses (with no ink) and embossed foils can all be used and make for fantastic finished product. Letterpress is cost effective in small runs, making it a viable option to enhance the look of your short-run assignments. It can also accept a wider variety of paper types and thicknesses than digital presses can.
