Letterpress vs budget

So, I have been investigating having a calendar I have designed produced in letterpress printing.

I have spoken to some lovely people and learnt lots of interesting things regarding the process, like there are different levels of impression; softer paper stock works better; 100% cotton is ideal; in the days past printers who made an impression on the paper got a real telling off, so different to today where there is a popular trend for heavy impressions.

Sadly, my budget does not allow for it on this occassion. I really have to find some wealthy clients so that I can convince them to work with letterpress, or find me a sugah-daddy. What are the chances?

  • Well … from experience, I’d say sugar-daddies are pretty thin on the ground! What about the wedding market?

  • I have seen invitations and wedding stationery done in letterpress and they do look amazing! It’s certainly something to consider 🙂
