The three most popular forms of printing are Letterpress, Engraving and Thermography. All of the paper designers we carry offer one if not all of these printing processes.

Letterpress

This is the oldest method of printing originally produced from cast metal type or plates. The face of the type is inked by rollers then pressed into the sheet of paper.

Engraving

Designs are etched into a copper plate. The plate is inked and then paper is forced against the plate at very high pressure. This process produces a raised ink and the characteristic indented impression on the back of the paper.

Thermography

This method of printing results in a raised type that simulates engraving. The printed inks are dusted with a powder which is passed under a heater. This process fuses the ink with the powder and swells the lettering.
