A little bit about Letterpress Printing:
Letterpress printing is a technique of relief printing using a printing press. In Haus Press composes and locks movable type into the bed of a press, inks it, and presses paper against it to transfer the ink from the type.
Letterpress printing was the normal form of printing text from its invention by Johannes Gutenberg in the mid-15th century until the 19th century and remained in wide use for books and other uses until the second half of the 20th century.
Letterpress printing remained the primary way to print and distribute information until the twentieth century, when offset printing was developed, which largely supplanted its role in printing books and newspapers. More recently, letterpress printing has seen a revival in an artisanal form.
