[Deboss / Pressed ink]
Letterpress is the oldest form of printing dating back to the 15th century. The process involves a reversed, raised surface being inked and then pressed into paper, creating an impression you can see and feel. While letterpress was never intended to be printed with a dramatic impression, or deboss into the paper, it is often the most desired feature today. The result is a unique, tactile finish created and crafted almost in entirety by hand, with superior attention to detail.
Letterpress is ideal for artisan projects such as wedding invitations, business cards, postcards, coasters, invitations and greeting cards.
Blind Debossing is similar to letterpress, but without the use of ink or foil. The paper is indented with the desired text or image. The process involves applying pressure to the front side of a substrate and forcing the material down from the surface.
