Letterpress wood type

Letterpress wood type

We recently laser cut some wood letters from 3mm MDF for a local letterpress enthusiast, to make these great prints. I won’t natter on about this as I couldn’t decide what pictures to show you…so i am putting them all in!

We cut the MDF letters from digital drawings…

The type has a 3d, three colour design. The first colour was laid out on his press and inked in gold…

Laser-letter-2

The ink was left to dry…

Ready-for-print

This was repeated with the other two colours, silver and grey…

Laser-letter-3

After some very careful lining up…voila!
