What is Letterpress?

Why choose letterpress…

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There are so many reasons why but here’s just a few...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Letterpress has an organic personal touch. Each piece of paper is run through my hands and examined while being printed. And in a world where everything is generic and mass produced, when you receive something that was made by hand it stands out.


With letterpress you have a variety in paper choice. With other printing methods such a digital you are limited to paper that can be run through the printer. Letterpress loves pretty handmade papers, deckled edged papers, and heavier weight papers that cannot be run through a digital printer. I love holding something that has a bit of weight and texture.

Letterpress creates beautiful dimension. You can run your fingers over the surface and feel the impression made in the paper. It adds elegance and depth to you invitations, business cards, or whatever you’re printing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Needless to say I’m a letterpress lover and I hope to make you one too! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
