Letterpress Beauties

by | Bride, Stationery And Paper Goods


Invitation by Artisan Press

I’m such a stationery addict – take me to Officeworks and I can find things I never knew I needed..a paper store? Yes I do have a collection of paper and notebooks too lovely to write in.

So I’m especially intrigued by the letterpress process. Letterpress printers use a special printer where they align the individual design features or plates, which is then pressed into the paper rather than ‘on’. The paper is often made of cotton fibres and is a laborious job to create!

I found a great movie on the process which you can view to get a feel for the technique.

Letterpress brings a special something to wedding invites- a vintage handmade feel which can leave a beautiful impression on your guests. Letterpress allows you to create an almost 3D effect on your paper with embossing, debossing, special inks, beautiful card- all presenting a perfect package and a feast for the eyes.

Check out these Aussie companies who are doing the letterpress beauties!
