This Round Is Letterpress.

We need cards!

So we decided to get them done using an old, yet different technique.

Letterpress printing is a term for the relief printing of text and image using a press with a “type-high bed” printing press and movable type, in which a reversed, raised surface is inked and then pressed into a sheet of paper to obtain a positive right-reading image. It was the normal form of printing text in the west from its invention by Johannes Gutenberg in the mid-15th century until the 19th century and remained in wide use for books and other uses until the second half of the 20th century.

To do the printing, we’ve engaged Eagle Print in Toronto. They do some of the most excellent letterpress work in all of Canada, and come with our highest recommendation.

We’d love to hear your thoughts on the new design.
