There's Nothing Quite Like the Magic of Letterpress
Ahh, letterpress. Ink, paper, lead type, the sound of the rollers on a Vandercook letterpress... these are things we're in love with. This art of letterpress printing - with its complexities, difficulties, and ultimate magic - is a highly involved process. From initial design concepts to final cutting and trimming, the letterpress method must be kept in mind. Letterpress requires many materials, as well as much time and skill. At Press 65, we love the process just as much as we love the final product. We enjoy documenting this process to allow our clients and fans to have an insider's view of the art. Step-by-step slideshows are provided below and we're always happy to answer questions and provide explanations for how this irresistible printing method works.
