Letterpress and Screen Printing Services
Put a modern spin on vintage letterpress and screen printing servicesLetterpress printing and screen printing are two different types of printing but they have many aspects in common. Both involve 3-dimensional blocks or plates that are used to make the image. Letterpress is the type of printing Ben Franklin used, and it was the most common type of printing up through the middle of the 20th century. More modern methods have supplanted letterpress and altered the process of screen printing so that it's very different from the old fashioned methods.
Old fashioned letterpress equipment is a dinosaur in the modern printing industry. However, many old letterpress machines have been refurbished by a new generation of craft printers, or are used alongside modern equipment. Screen printing provides various ways to print on all types of surfaces, but the old fashioned methods are still in use by niche printers.
There is room for all types of printing applications in today's marketplace:
1. Many businesses purchase fine stationery and business cards printed on letterpress printing equipment.
2. Corporations and small businesses imprint all types of apparel with corporate logos or business designs using screen printing techniques.
3. Modern screen printing processes provide business signs, product containers and labels for industrial use.
