Custom Printing

Letterpress printing was the normal form of printing text from its invention by Johannes Gutenberg in the mid-15th century until the 19th century and remained in wide use for books and other uses until the second half of the 20th century. Letterpress printing remained the primary way to print and distribute information until the 20th century, when offset printing was developed, which largely supplanted its role in printing books and newspapers. All forms of data collection were affected by the invention of letterpress printing, as were many careers such as teachers, preachers, physicians and surgeons and artist-engineers.

Letterpress Printing is the classic style of printing where the paper is stamped with an engraved metal die. The advancements of offset and digital printing have made the letterpress uneconomical and time consuming for standard printing but it is still widely used for high-end finishing.
