Letterpress

Invented by Johann Gutenburg in the 1400s, letterpress printing was the primary form of printing and communication for more than 500 years. Today, letterpress printing provides a luxuriously tactile feel that denotes quality. It is used on forms of communication such as wedding invitations, holiday cards, business cards, and announcements.

Ten years ago, Fig Industries purchased three presses: a 1860 Gordon Franklin treadle operated 10×15 platen press, a 1950 Heidelberg Windmill Red Ball 10×15 press, and a Challenge MP15 14×19 Proof Press. Fig Industries combines modern design with this old-world printing process—a custom result for clients who want to make a unique statement. You’ll be impressed!
