About Letterpress Stationery
Letterpress printing was developed in the 14th century and involves setting type and motifs in reverse on a letterpress plate, which is then inked and pressed onto the surface of paper. This style of printing leaves a deep impression on the paper creating a three dimensional print that has a feel unlike any other type of printing. Most letterpress papers use a high quality and heavier weight paper that won't tear or thin when pressed. Prints are made one-at-a-time with each print having its own unique variations of ink coverage and depth of impression.
