Letterpress Love

There is just something about the look of letterpress. Stationery and invitations seem classier and more elegant. Artwork and the printed word is crisper and more vibrant. Perhaps it's the vintage feel that comes with the fact that letterpress is the oldest form of printing. No matter the reason, letterpress is making a comeback in the printed stationery market, and I couldn't be happier. As luck would have it, while searching for wedding invitations recently, I found the most phenomenal letterpress studio right in my own backyard. Sesame Letterpress, located in Brooklyn, NY (right under the Brooklyn Bridge), was founded by husband and wife team, Matt Heindl and Breck Hostetter. Using 19th century presses, Matt and Breck produce gorgeous invitations, cards, coasters, tags, and other printed goods that are incredibly rich in color and exquisitely detailed. I can hardly wait until its time to design my wedding invites!
