Flat Printing

Creating the hundreds of shades in a watercolor wash or loose florals is a breeze when it comes to flat printing. We love this printing method for recreating the intricacies of colors and gradients.

Because it does not require the creation of a special plate, flat printing has the fastest turnaround and is also going to be at the lowest price point in our offerings.

Foil Printing

There are several ways one could achieve a metallic finish in your lettering or details. Of those, we prefer foil printing. Similar to letterpress, a metal plate is created of your design and then pressed down to print the metallic foil.

letterpress Printing

Letterpress is a gorgeous and very old method of printing. This is created by using a "plate" based on your design and pressed into thick paper, indenting the page. It has an amazing tactile quality to it that just cannot be matched.

We approach letterpress in two different ways. In the first, we can do an entirely pressed suite, which would be the case when your design focuses on calligraphy, typography, and simpler line artwork. Or alternatively, the second way is in combination with flat print. If you're interested in the tactile aspect of letterpress but don't want to give up some more complicated watercolor artwork, we can also combine the two.
