Berrington Press

Basically the method of letterpress is printing from a relief or raised image (also referred to a plate or forme) which is directly transferred to paper or board by means of ink and impression. It is one of the oldest methods of printing dating back to the 15th century and widely accredited to Johannes Gutenberg who pioneered printing with moveable type in Europe in the mid 1400s. This was a hugely significant cultural innovation which brought the dawn of mass communication and the subsequent outflow of ideas (often revolutionary) communicated through the printed word.

Today letterpress printing is prized for its beauty and tactility as well as for its functionality. Here at Berrington Press we offer a comprehensive letterpress service which combines these qualities resulting in each and every job being produced to the finest standard - from invoice and order books and business cards to bespoke wedding stationery.
