WHAT IS LETTERPRESS

16 Jul

I found this great letterpress project from Studio On Fire. It’s a perfect example on the behind-the-scenes action of the letterpress world. Here is a quick glimpse into the art of letterpress printing from start to finish.

First comes concept and sketching of ideas
Next is recreating the sketch as vector art on the computer
Once the art is created on the computer it gets sent off to be made into photopolymer plates (which look like big ugly stickers).
And the final step is printing!!

I can’t wait to get to it this weekend.

Happy weekend!!!

    This is awesome!

    Here’s another great letterpress story – I bought one 🙂 You should make mini posters and sell them in cute little frames for like $10. I’d buy one or 5! 🙂
