LetterMpress Ipad App Creates Unique Art for Holiday Cards

Press release from the issuing company

LetterMpress(R) for the Apple iPad lets anyone create unique images and messages for use on their holiday cards with vintage wood type and art cuts on a virtual hand-drive printing press. The app takes full advantage of the hands-on nature of the iPad to immerse the user in a fun, easy and authentic letterpress experience. This season LetterMpress is sponsoring a holiday card design contest on the LetterMpress Facebook page and offering the app at 50% off its regular price for the month of December. Sale price is $2.99 on the App Store.

The LetterMpress app delivers an authentic, hands-on letterpress printing experience on the Apple iPad. Users select and assemble vintage wood type and art images, mix colors and ink the type, select paper from an array of colors and textures, and hand-crank the virtual letterpress on their iPad display to output their designs. Holiday cards and other designs produced on LetterMpress can be printed, shared via email, Photo Album, posted to Facebook, Tumblr and other social media, or output to popular graphics applications.

See holiday card designs and card contest winners on the LetterMpress Facebook page. Enter your holiday card design for a chance to win a "Long Live Letterpress" t-shirt and global fame. Decisions of the contest judges are completely arbitrary and subjective. More designs from LetterMpress users appear on Flickr .

LetterMpress is available now on the App Store in the Entertainment category at its holiday price of $2.99. Additional information and a video demonstration of the app can be found on the app's Web site, www.lettermpress.com and on YouTube.
