Red Circle Letterpress | Shop
"RCLP in collaboration with some great designers, bring you these Christmas card designs that you can purchase to send out to friends and family. Thanks to Jeff Rogers, John Passafiume, Dan Cassaro, Ryan Feerer (coming soon) and Chris Rushing."
We love putting ink on paper. We use a historic method of printing known as letterpress. Before the use of computers and digital printing, type was printed using metal or wooden typefaces that would be arranged by hand and printed using a letterpress style printing press. We started our shop by resurrecting one of these old letterpresses. A 1947 Kluge to be exact. After weeks of cleaning and replacing worn out parts, we were able to get our Kluge up and printing again. Its a marvel to see in action.
