What is Letterpress you ask? Some of the earliest known examples date back to the 15th century with the Gutenberg Bible. Believe it or not, the basic principles of this delicate technique are still in use today, where text and images are actually impressed into paper. Letterpress printing creates crisp, clean lines and bold patterns that have greater visual definition than any other printing technique.
