PRINTING METHOD: LETTERPRESS
HAVE YOU ALWAYS DREAMED OF HAVING YOUR WEDDING INVITATIONS LETTERPRESS PRINTED? IT'S TIME TO MAKE THAT COME TRUE. AND, BOY, DO THEY FEEL GOOD IN YOUR HANDS.
Ever since printing my first piece on the Vandercook press back in college, a machine with such age and history, letterpress has remained my favorite printing method. Letterpress is a technique of relief printing using a printing press, a process by which many copies are produced by repeated direct impression of an inked, raised surface against sheets of paper.
There really isn't anything like the feeling of a freshly printed letterpress invitation. The texture that the impression creates paired with the cotton paper that is uniquely soft to the touch ... it just can't be beat.
Get your hands on some of these goodies so you can experience it for yourself. Trust me, you will appreciate this art form as much as I do.
The Lady invitation is shown below in navy blue ink on our house cotton paper in pearl.
