Letterpress Printing

Bidon Press still offers letterpress printing.

Letterpress printing is known to be the oldest method of creating printed documents. This method was first invented by the Chinese at around the year 1440. This type of printing method was commercially used from the start of the 15th century up to today. Letterpress printing uses raised metal surfaces that are combined together to create the layout and the text contents of the material to be produced. These surfaces are inked and then pressed against paper.

Most printers today do not use letterpress printing anymore because of the advent of modern methods such as offset and digital printing. We however think that there is still a place for letterpress printing. Fine letterpress work is crisper than offset and digital because of its impression into the paper, giving greater visual definition to the type and artwork. Letterpress printing is best for clients that require specialized needs. This type of production method works well with upscale invitations, stationeries and other novelty items.
