Sparkle and Shine on America! Happy Independence Day! As we celebrate the 4th of July, let’s honor America’s past when letterpress ruled the printing world.
To replicate the pre-digital days, I used the iPad app, Letter M press, to create the image above.
In the Compose mode, I selected letters and graphics to place on the printer bed.
In the Print mode, I applied ink and ran paper through the press.
This process simulates a real letterpress experience.
It’s fun to relive the past to see how far we’ve come today.
