Letterpress printing can technically be traced back to Johannes Gutenberg, the inventor of book printing as such. Over the last 50 years, it has been superseded by offset printing and has only survived in niches. Nowadays letterpress is mainly a modern marketing trend, where business cards are produced on historical machines in the classic letterpress look. We do this too, only instead of printing with ink, we melt color pigments onto the surface. The color selection is more limited, but we have the advantage that we can also melt real metal: In addition to gold and silver, hologram effects and many metallic chromatic colors are also possible. A more tactile indentation is also achievable upon request.
We can process prints of this type in sizes up to sheet format 720x1,020mm. From 80g/m² paper to cardboard up to 700g/m² and 4mm thick cardboard, a wide range of materials is possible.
