Developed in the 14th century, letterpress printing involves setting type and motifs in reverse on letterpress plate. The plate is then inked and pressed onto the surface of a paper. The pressing process transfers the ink and leaves a deep impression on the paper creating a three dimensional print that has a feel unlike any other types of printing.
