Free PaperSpecs Webinar: Live from the Letterpress Revolution

Press release from the issuing company

Thursday November 8, 2018
2:00 p.m. Eastern (11:00 a.m. Pacific)

In PaperSpecs' upcoming free webinar sponsored by Neenah, explore the power and sophistication of letterpress from a master of the craft, and discover how it can bring out the best in your own design work, too.

Palo Alto, California – In a world grown increasingly smooth and polished, nothing stands out quite like letterpress. From elegant playing card packages to sumptuous business cards with deep impressions, letterpress is remembered by everyone who encounters it. Though nearly 600 years old, the technique is enjoying something of a renaissance today.

In an exclusive PaperSpecs webinar, Ben Levitz, founder of the inspiring Minnesota letterpress shop Studio On Fire, takes you on a wild ride through the art form in all its variations: from wood cuts and hand-set type to prints made by...steamrollers?

"There's just something about letterpress, isn’t there," observes PaperSpecs Founder Sabine Lenz. “No matter how sophisticated offset and digital printing get, letterpress, with its handmade quality and the fingertip-pleasing impressions it leaves, communicates the designer’s thoughts and intentions on an almost spiritual level.”

But to get the most out of letterpress, you have to know what it’s great at, what it isn’t, and how to make your own design work play to the many strengths of this timeless medium.
