LEARN ABOUT LETTERPRESS.

Welcome to our new blog series titled Talking Letterpress.

Every medium is unique and each requires a different creative approach. Designing for print is no exception. It can be a little intimidating for those more familiar with pushing pixels rather than vector art around a page.

We have nothing against digital communications. But if you want your print work to turn out it’s very best you need to understand how it works and how to create a design and artwork for letterpress reproduction.

With this we begin the series:

  • Talk to a Codger

    Talking Old-time Print.
