Quality Letterpress Since the Truman Administration
and a whole lot more!
Practice makes perfect printing
Our forefathers started offset and letterpress printing here in Berkeley in 1946. Through the years, they have shared their knowledge and trade secrets with us. The pride and dedication they put into each printing job continues with each generation.
Letterpress has been a printing technique for over 5 centuries. Our main letterpresses are Heidelberg Windmills, which are widely regarded as the best letterpresses in the world. Letterpress printing can produce some of the most beautiful wedding invitations and business cards you can imagine. Send us your artwork for a free evaulation to see if it is suitable for letterpress. We can make letterpress plates from most any digital file.
Foil printing is “hot stamped” using the same vintage Heidelberg Windmills that we do all of our letterpress printing on. It’s not much more expensive to add foil as a highlight to your invitations, while adding a lot of pizazz! We have 100’s of color options for foil. Just ask for a sample foil color swatch and we’ll mail it out.
Digital printing is our most economical method for short runs such as invitations or if you perhaps need a few hundred brochures, business cards, or envelopes. We can combine digital printing, such as watercolor images, with letterpress and/or foil to create extra stunning invitations.
