We really like the lettering on this recent invite we printed, designed by Liz DeMartino. The block of green with the type reversed out makes great use of white as a third "color". Letterpress inks are transparent based, so white ink never looks crisp or truly opaque. Using the white of the paper stock to achieve a white image is an excellent use of the letterpress process.

We also love the vintage valentine feel of these, with the heart and arrow and dense, cool green and orange inks.
