Your Announcements in Elegant Letterpress

What is Letterpress?

The beginning of printing movable type on a printing press dates back to the 15th century and is credited to Johann Gutenberg, who created the first printed Bible in the 1450s. Letterpress printing, more than 500 years later, still produces the most readable, elegant text, as 3-dimensional type or a relief plate is pressed into a high quality paper. With the commonality of computers, we forget the origins of type faces and fonts originally drawn by a scribe, cut and cast one letter at a time, and and set, ready to go to press.

At Intima Press, we honor the labor and elegance of past traditions and print each design with the greatest care and attention to detail in this unique process. Our designs are a union of art historical traditions and modern design. Although we love to keep the tradition of hand setting metal foundry type alive, most of our printing is done custom from your digital design files, translated into a plate. We work with you to provide you with invitations as unique as you are.

Our vintage letterpress renders beautiful impressions of your words.

Artist, Mindy Belloff has been making art for over 25 years and printing letterpress for over a decade. She brings a high aesthetic and discriminating eye to her artwork and your special invitations.
