Letterpress fell out of favour many years ago as litho printing became the norm. However, over the last twenty years, letterpress has enjoyed a revival as designers and printers appreciate the infinite opportunities offered by this most traditional of printing techniques.
Letterpress printing is a term used to describe printing using a press that inks the image then ‘stamps’ the paper. This is a process that has changed little since the Gutenberg Bible was published circa 1455.
