Beautiful work from Dolce Press



I love letterpress!

"Letterpress printing is a term for the relief printing of text and image using a press with a "type-high bed" printing press and movable type, in which a reversed, raised surface is inked and then pressed into a sheet of paper to obtain a positive right-reading image. It was the normal form of printing text in the West from its invention by Johannes Gutenberg in the mid-15th century until the 19th century, and remained in wide use for books and other uses until the second half of the 20th century."

  1. Thanks for posting some of our work!

    The VERTU invitaiton you posted was printed for Men's Vogue on black stock that was the thickness of cardboard (super thick).

    Do you do letterpress?

  2. Hi Dolce Press,

    I must say, I absolutely love your work! It's very rare with letterpress here in Denmark, but I would love to use it on some of my work someday. It's a beautiful technique... So clean! And the best thing - you can feel it :-)
