Letterpress Wedding Invitations
Letterpress wedding invitations are not a new trend. In fact, they’re one of the oldest styles to date yet for a long time they were reserved for the most formal weddings.
Today, letterpress is regarded as a formal wedding printing style and, as such, it reigns as one of the most sought-after printing choices for couples. However, it’s not limited to formal weddings alone.
Letterpress is quality you can feel, a unique feature you won’t find on other printing styles.

What Is Letterpress?
Letterpress is a printing style created from a hard-raised image under pressure. It uses something called viscous ink: ink is applied to the raised surface and paper is actually pressed directly against it to transfer the text or image. Letterpress printing is one of the oldest printing techniques and is one you can actually feel with your fingertips.
