As a designer (albeit a bit of luddite) I absolutely LOVE letterpress items! Very **Drool** worthy for me – I would kill to have a machine in here to do that sort of thing (though if you live in the West End of Vancouver – you are very limited of space!). In case you didn’t know what LetterPress is “for the relief printing of text and image using a press with a “type-high bed” printing press and movable type, in which a reversed, raised surface is inked and then pressed into a sheet of paper to obtain a positive right-reading image.”
What I find so great about letterpresses, its the fine detailing it allows – plus … it’s just wow! You can get large format printing on letterpress – but it will cost you. This process is very popular with wedding stationery or brand identity stationery.
Anywho – this is my find for the day. Check out Mika78. This former packaging designer decided to leave the design world and decided to follow her passion (Good for her!). Here is a small sampling from her website.
Simply gor-jus – almost makes one want to get married just to have the cards!
