For more than five centuries, letterpress has been a form of mass printed communication. It is a vintage print-making process that includes moving font and image with raised plate, typically carved on metal or wooden element (A rubber stamp is a light example of how the plate works). In addition of ink impression, letterpress will also allow emboss imprint on paper surface or other receptive strata.

Letterpress printing is more time consuming and intense laboring than digital or offset printing. It is not a solution to efficient approach or cost wise. However, it delivers more ravishing result as an ideal craftsmanship suited to produce quality items in small quantities (i.e. 100 to 350 pieces). Most common material used for letterpress printing is 100% Cotton paper, mostly for bridal stationery (such as invitation, RSVP card, place card etc.).
