Why is letterpress printing so expensive?
Letterpress printing is a tedious process – from arranging your designs using individual type blocks, to the inking and imprinting stage. It involves equipment and a certain level of craftsmanship that not many printers would have.
As it is handmade, letterpress allows control and customization when it comes to fine typography. What you get is an elegant, tactile effect on your materials. This is why a lot of people are opting for their invitations and business cards to be printed this way.
So if you look at all its features, you would understand why you’d pay a premium to get the distinct look and feel of letterpress-printed pieces.
