LETTERPRESS PRINTING | NYC
Publicide offers high quality letterpress printing in New York City that can make your digital design into a tactile, memorable three-dimensional object. Our vintage 20th century Heidelberg presses stamp your text & design directly into the paper. Debossing into paper creates shadows and highlights, adding depth and dimension to your artwork that digital printing can’t replicate. And however much we might love the commercial efficiency of offset printing, it’s tough for these methods to compare to typography deeply impressed into plush cotton papers with flawless registration and touchably crisp results.
Give your event invitations, wedding cards, and bat mitzvah invitations a memorable keepsake quality with letterpress printing on downy soft 100% cotton paper (although any of our luxe paper stock options will lend themselves to the technique). Pick your favorite Pantone ink colors of the season—multicolor letterpress registration is a specialty of ours that can be effortlessly achieved on business cards, personal stationery, invites and even commercial printing jobs. Add specialty custom details, such as an embossed logo or monogram for a touch of the grandiose. Finish your print run with metallic inks or silver gilded edge for an ultra-polished dose of refinement.
The letterpress print technique is best for line based illustrations, artwork, type and logo printing, but email us today to see if your design is letterpress-ready!
PRICING + PRINT PRODUCTION NOTES
Pricing for letterpress printing is based on quantity, paper type and the number of processes and machines that will be used in creating the order. More elaborate and custom print specs cost considerably more than standard orders, so it’s important to get your quote before proceeding. Production time varies with order complexity and our seasonal workload but our elastic schedule allows for very fast rush prints when required, though rush charges apply. Turnaround time is calculated from the date of PDF proof approval. If your color printing project has a hard due-date please let us know when making your request. Email us with your design file or specs to receive a custom quote for your printing project. All projects must have a custom quote number to proceed.
Some letterpress print specs are available for rush printing service. To inquire about a rush letterpress job, please email artwork, print specifications and desired completion date ASAP to firstname.lastname@example.org. If we’re able to accommodate your schedule we will reply with pricing and additional costs for the rush. Letterpress rush printing is one of our specialties but please be aware that every moment counts in a rush print schedule. Some jobs will require additional shifts and weekend work to finish on time so the price can be significantly higher than jobs on a regular schedule.
