The process ain’t quick. It ain’t cheap. And it ain’t easy. Which is exactly the point.

Archival Giclée Prints
Sometimes we don’t have enough letters to typeset a long block, or the art is too complex for plates, or we just want to make smaller runs. That’s where giclée (said like G-Clay) prints come in.
The images are less saturated –CMYK printing isn’t as bright as spot colors – but the flexibility, and pricing, are great for complementary offerings.
And we’ve built fonts from scanned letterpress type, so you get some of the character of the less than perfect letters. We print on the same 100% acid-free cotton paper with pigment-based inks.
