letterpress printing services
THE HOME OF ELEGANT LETTERPRESS
Letterpress printing is what we do best. So let’s create something beautiful together.
The oldest printing technique – letterpress, has seen a revival in recent years and rightly so. At Seagull Press, we operate a genuine 1960s Heidelberg ‘T’ Platen using traditional century old push printing methods. We combine this with modern day digital letterpress plates to give you an absolutely stunning result.
What is letterpress?
Letterpress printing (also referred to as relief printing or typographic printing) is images or text placed onto paper by raised printing plates. The surfaces of the plates are inked and when pressed onto the stock, create stunning impressions and an elegant texture. The same process can be applied to create a blind impression (impressions without ink), which is a subtle way to add texture without colour.
Choose from a wide range of paper stock and colours to get the look you’re after. In addition to letterpress printing, we also offer hot foil stamping to make your print work truly stand out. For inspiration take a look at our portfolio.
When it comes to letterpress we believe less is more. From classic to contemporary, we’ll work with you one on one to create the perfect bespoke invitation for your special occasion.
Uncoated stock works best for letterpress. The thickness of the stock will determine the depth of impression that can be achieved. We will happily discuss your options to ensure you get the result you’re after. Need someone to design your invitation? We can work with you to create the look that you want.
Letterpress Business Cards
Using letterpress on business cards is a great way to subtly enhance your design and make the ultimate first impression. Printed on thick fluffy uncoated stock, letterpress is a unique way to give your cards a luxurious feel. Supply your own artwork or we can work with you to ensure that your design is fitting to the process.
