Oh, letterpress. How lovely art thou letterpress? The intricate placement of each letter form embossed on beautiful paper just melts our hearts. Just take a look at these gorgeous letterpress save the dates and you’ll know exactly what we mean.
Although letterpress design has been around since the 15th century (thank you Johannes Gutenburg for inventing moveable type!), it still remains one of the most coveted forms of high-end stationery and invitation printing. There’s nothing more gratifying than opening up an envelope and pulling out a gorgeous letterpress save the date or wedding invitation. The bumps and grooves that are felt while running your fingers across the indented type is almost hypnotic. Letterpress is by no means “cheap”…it can definitely cost you a pretty penny. But is it worth it? After spotting these gorgeous letterpress save the dates, we’d all have to agree…OOOOOH yeah.
