Letterpress Printing

Ink and Paper have always been central ingredients to the Archivist and they are now owners of Britain’s largest dedicated Letterpress printing facility. 

What is Letterpress Printing? Archivist explains it like this:

“Letterpress printing uses a press that inks the image then ‘stamps’ the paper. The process has changed little since the Gutenberg bible was published in 1455. These days a few of the manual processes have been replaced by engineering advances​, but it is still guided through under the watchful eye of a master printer. The result is a product with a unique texture and an unrivalled finish.”
