Each Letterpress design is available in a 1-color and a 2-color layout, both of which can be personalized using our exclusive Letterpress palette of 30 distinct hues. On our 2-color layouts, you also have the option of choosing inkless. An inkless impression is when the letterpress printing plate is pressed into the paper surface to make an indented impression of the image without using any ink. It’s a beautiful way to showcase the extraordinary qualities of letterpress.
The colors below are digital approximations of our letterpress inks. Due to differences in computer monitors, we cannot be responsible for variations in color between the actual product and your screen. The best way to experience letterpress is in person. We strongly recommend ordering samples so you can experience the beauty of the graphics/text impressed into our recycled cotton paper.
We offer 3 different cotton paper options for Letterpress (Click the Paper Name below to jump to the ink swatch/paper types/envelope liners sections below):
Feel free to change the letterpress colors on any design once you enter iDesign. Custom inks are available for an additional cost.
PLEASE NOTE: The beauty of Letterpress inks is that they are translucent and water-based. This causes the paper to show through the ink and may change the appearance of the ink color. The uncoated, recycled cotton Crane paper used for letterpress absorbs the ink so colors are not as bright or vibrant as those printed on coated stock.
