As you might have heard, letterpress has been enjoying a renaissance in the last decade or so. Beautifully tactile and simply exquisite, letterpress printing has a rich elegance that one can’t help but appreciate.
Letterpress is both an art and a science. It’s just the type of printing that Rossi excels at because it requires a high level of craftsmanship and great patience to produce. To create the collection, Rossi’s own vintage printing presses were brought out of retirement and put to work.
Prints are made one-at-a-time with each print having its own unique variations of ink coverage and depth of impression. Registering the color on press is critical, especially when the motifs are tight and complex, as they are with the Rossi patterns.
A high quality and heavier weight paper that will not tear or collapse when pressed is generally used for letterpress. Rossi 1931 uses a perfect type of paper containing fibers that are soft and readily accept an impression. Needless to say, the prints are luxurious and the telltale impression the press leaves on the paper is sought after by stationery fans everywhere.
These distinctive prints are perfect for invitations, book covers and albums, greeting cards, and personal stationery, even framed prints. Here’s a sneak peek of the collection:
A large selection of Rossi papers are now stocked stateside in Florida, making shipping and delivery a breeze throughout the US.
