Letterpress printing has been the de-facto printing technique in New York City for invitations, stationery, and business cards for high-minded aesthets. Therefore, critical taste-makers whose printed matter must be dressed to impress always turn to Publicide. The modern letterpress industry is built on hundreds of years of inventive thinking and practical experimentation. Letterpress as we know it started in the late 1800s. The printing industry has seen all kind of innovations and new ways of putting ink to paper through various technologies. Like many things, though, it’s not surprising that back to basics is where we find ourselves today. Becuase letterpress printing was once the only kind of printing. Plain and simple.
