The letterpress print process dates back to the 1400s with Johannes Gutenberg’s invention of moveable type. Raised plates are pressed into paper, leaving a tactile impression.
Keyholecollection.com letterpress greeting cards are printed in small batches by hand on a Stevenson Blake proofing press in our Glasgow studio or in larger numbers by our friendly master printer in Dumfries who uses an Antique Heidelberg. We use rubber based inks and eco-friendly board.
