Letterpress is a fairly common technique that allows to create unique and attractive print artworks. Whereas you like minimal style, black and white color scheme, or even prefer to make heavy illustrated colorful project – letterpress can make wonders for you. Of course, more often designers use it in creating business cards, but there are another great ways of taking advantages of this kind of print, for example you can find mind-blowing posters, flyers, wedding cards, calendars and even covers for notebooks with extrusion touch. And what about color, undoubtedly black and white color palette is considered to be one of the most used, but, to my mind, another color schemes are not fully evaluated. Of course, the first one is truly sophisticated and brings more aesthetically pleasure rather then functionality, but approach of using bright colors is really intriguing and can lead to amazing unexpected results.
Today I’ve devoted my article to use of vibrant colors and letterpress together. I hope you find some helpful and inspirational examples.
