Paprika letterpress+design offers design and letterpress printing services.
Letterpress is a centuries-old relief printing process. The basic theory remains unchanged over the past five centuries, though modern technology allows us to combine digital layout with traditional printing. Our designs are created by hand drawing or on a computer from original,found or purchased artwork. These images are made into photopolymer plates through a photographic process.
All type and images are raised up on the plate and form the printed image area, while the recessed areas surrounding the design do not print. The ink from the printing press is applied to these raised areas of the plate, which is then pressed into the paper.
Letterpress printing imparts an unmistakable impression in the paper, giving a vivid, three-dimensional appearance. The process is very labor intensive, as each color is put down one at a time. But the results are unmistakably unique.
With an emphasis on creating one-of-a-kind projects, we work with found and original art to create our unique letterpress cards, note cards, wedding invitations, announcements and special occasion pieces.
