Letterpress printing is a traditional printing technique that has been applied for over 100 years, it is a process by which the cards are produced by repeated direct impression of an inked, raised surface against the paper.
It is a very similar process to debossing, except letterpress cards are finished with inked debossed impression without leaving impression marks on the reverse side.
Similar to screen printing, the ink is specifically mixed by referring to the Pantone color chart and the cost is charged by the number of colors required.
Letterpress can also be applied on cards with the following effects for added touch:
- direct printing (1 or 2 sided)
- edge painting
- edge foiling - screen printing
