Letterpress Printing

Letterpress is a traditional technique of relief printing produced on a Heidelberg Windmill press. Ink is transferred directly from a die to the paper resulting in an embossed look and feel.

Letterpress printing was the normal form of printing from the time of its invention by Johannes Gutenberg in the mid-15th century until the 19th century and remained in wide use for books and other uses until the second half of the 20th century.
