What is Letterpress Printing?

You may have noticed all our cards are letterpress printed, but what exactly does that mean and why is it so great?

Heidelberg Letterpress printer
Letterpress is a nearly 600 year old form of relief printing that involves pressing a carved design covered in ink into paper.

Why is that so great then? Well because unlike with digital printing it gives a beautiful embossed texture to the paper, making each design unique.

Our letterpress products are made using a vintage 1960's Heidelberg printing press, watch the quick video below to see it in action!
