Palo Alto, California – March 13, 2013 – In the age of photo bomb branding and viral meme marketing (maybe even because of it), we crave the personal, human touch that paper and ink delivers. And nothing delivers that kind of connection … texture … charm … and distinction quite like letterpress printing.
“Designers, artists, print and paper lovers – we just can’t get enough of the beauty of letterpress,” says Sabine Lenz, founder of PaperSpecs.com. “That’s why I’m really excited to present a new webinar exploring the creative possibilities that this timeless printing technique brings to stationery, business cards, covers, greetings and fine art.”
