    Letterpress printing is a printing technique which has been in use in the West since around the 15th Century (Gutenberg used it to manufacture his version of the Bible). It involves locking movable type into the bed of a press, inking it, and rolling or pressing paper against it to form an impression. It's a very time-consuming process, as each invitation needs to be hand fed through the machine. It results in an indentation on the front side of the invitations, and raised print on the back.

                I'm in Calgary too and I am in love with letterpress. So much so that I decided to buy my own press. If anyone in Calgary needs invitations I'm available to help. I only charge enough to cover the cost of my press and the materials. I also have workshops if you'd like to learn how to make them on your own. My blog is letterpresscalgary.blogspot.com.
