The Method

The Method

Letterpress is not your usual printing technique, it is a rare and traditional method used from the mid 15th century to mid 20th Century. There has been a recent revival of letterpress, it’s undeniable luxurious character only preserved by stalwart craftsmen.  Only the best materials are used when printing with letterpress, anything less is an injustice! Cranes 100% cotton paper is renowned for its crisp clear printability and elegant feel which is complimented by its notoriously beautiful envelopes. These can also be printed or embossed with your logo or mark along with a multitude of finishing touches from liners, decorating with ribbon to foiling. The finishes are endless so discussing your options is what makes the process so enjoyable. Our inks of choice are oil based meaning more vibrant colors can be achieved but also light and deep tones. Staying true to the age old craft while still incorporating modern designs that will stand the test of time is essential to our rationale. There’s still something very special about seeing your design realised when you pull that first print. It’s no wonder everybody loves letterpress.
