A Letterpressed Holiday

To me, letterpress is the most perfect form of printing. Handcrafted and printed in small qualities, there isn’t really a way to capture the tactile quality of letterpress with mass production. Often printed on recycled papers in small runs letterpress items are a great green option for this hoilday season. This wonderful old world craft is experiencing a revival and designers all over have embraced it with exciting modern designs. Here are a few holiday picks. TOP ROW: 1.
