If you're reading this that means you're receiving a complimentary letterpress printed project, yay!

 

The content of the print is up to you to decide, it can be something fun or something you’ve been wanting for your business. Due to the vintage nature of letterpress, below are some technical Q&As with a couple of pictures of letterpress printed projects for inspiration.
