What is Letterpress Printing

The standard letterpress process involves printing words or designs with ink while simultaneously debossing it into a thick, soft paper. Over the past several years letterpress has seen a resurgence in popularity, evolving into a modern art form that epitomizes class and high quality. 

Letterpress as a modern trend:

Letterpress printing has seen a revival in the past few years, particularly due to the interest created by the use of letterpress for wedding invitations in contemporary magazines and websites. The popularity of this form of printing has continued to grow and become one of the most sought after looks for stationery, invitations, cards, gifts, coasters etc. Because of the size, price and lack of accessibility to a traditional letterpress machine, this art form has yet to become available to the everyday home crafter…until now.

I am not sure if this can be used with other embossing machines, I will try and find out though. It does look interesting the craft itself, I think though I might be able to do something similar with my cuttlebug embossing and a sticky ink like that. Not sure though so don’t quote me on that, if this was a bit cheaper I would totally buy it to try it out. Anyway I’ll post again if I find out anything more, but in the meantime if you guys want to check it out or purchase it please head on over to Oh My Crafts and get it from them.
