Letterpress

Letterpress printing reflects an era of quality and craftsmanship. This historic method of printing dates back to the 1400’s and Johannes Gutenberg’s invention of movable type and the printing press using raised type and images, inked and pressed into the surface of heavy papers. Sheets of paper are fed one at a time into the cast iron platen presses.  This craft and printing method is still kept alive at Whiteman Park Print Shop.
