Choose the supreme dimension of Letterpress Printing.

The virtues of speed & Ultra Vibrant Color Processing brought forward by digital printing have certainly sparked progress across the working world. However, the individual care & intention placed into every Letterpress print makes the final product radiate with unblocked distinction. With tradition and corporeal gravitas behind it, Letterpress Printing literally presses the ink down into the paper—delivering visible, touchable results.

Ultimately, the quality of letterpress printing relies on the skills of the artisan manning the Heidelberg press, rather than the high resolution efficiencies of a laser. Letterpress is the human choice: it’s only natural that letterpress printing would yield such tactile results.

Timeless Depth

Moveable woodblock type & block imaging came to life in ancient China and then filtered west– finding a home 1500 years later among Gutenberg’s pressmen. Johannes Gutenberg is of course synonymous with the eponymous bibles hand-printed in his mills in the 1400s.   At about 1300 pages, each book demanded three years of relentless work before completion. While the Gutenberg Bible is considered the first instance of a printed & perfectly bound book, history shows the Tang Dynasty’s Diamond Sutra has centuries on ol’ Johannes. And prettier pictures. In any event, the demand for print grew & grew, leading to the industrial revolution and all that mass communication along the way.

How It Works

At our Midtown Manhattan Print Shop, we’ll create a master plate of the art file, rather than exclusively relying on a sprawling archive of moveable type. Not too far from age-old techniques implemented in the Middle Ages and Ancient East, Letterpress Printing today relies on a photopolymer emulsion process. First, the layout and typeset happens digitally: after you send us your art file, the design, logo, and key contact information goes through a point by point finessing from our typesetter.

The perfected pre-press proof is then approved by the client and sent off to be created into copper inking plates; by way of acid etching and photo engraving, the text/art elements are transformed into a relief.  The final result is a convex manifestation of the print to come. The raised design stands out from the rest of the plate, ready to kiss or bite into your selection of premium paper stock.

Depending on the complexity of your print, Letterpress might require multiple plates. The greatest letterpressings are carefully built with multiple processes. The inherent dimension of Letterpress can be expanded upon with an artful selection of specialty specs. Spot color, Embossing, and Foil Stamping might require your print to go through the presses more than once. Colorful imaging could demand offset printing or digital methods. Either way your print is in careful hands, receiving the same consideration whether you’re going for a shining streamlined single-process letterpress or a super-stacked spec-heavy showstopper.

Business Cards, Event Invitations, Wedding Suites, Stationery Printing, and Commercial Printing all benefit from the satisfying visual depth of Letterpress Printing. The resulting clean lines and natural shadows bring a harmonious sense of cinematic drama to each print: all the more capable of keeping the beholder engaged & entertained for at least as long as a winning awards show speech.
