What is Letterpress Printing?
The match boxes are also truly stunning. Archivist explains how they are made.
“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 These days a few of the manual processes have been replaced by engineering advances, but it is still guided through under the watchful eye of a master printer.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.”
