Letterpress Printing

Where printing began… and still in big demand. Townprint has four Heidelberg letterpresses. These days we no longer use moveable type on them. We use acid etched magnesium plates so the images we print are anything we can create on a computer. These machines do all the die cutting, embossing, foiling, scoring, and the more complex numbering jobs. These processes can turn a good print job into a spectacular print job.Embossing is a letterpress process where we impress an image into card or paper, usually upwards on the front. Braille is often embossed into cards. The image might be a floral arrangement on a wedding invite, a company logo on business cards or letterheads, or a security seal on a function ticket or whatever you can imagine. We call it blind embossing.
