Experience The Traditional Letterpress Printing On Your iPad

Experience The Traditional Letterpress Printing On Your iPad

A creative app that lets you design your own letter print on a digital platform.

Yi Chen


LetterMpress is an iPad app that allows users to experience manual letterpress printing using vintage wood type and art cuts on a digital platform. The interactive app incorporates the same process as traditional letterpress printing, which has been around for centuries. Users can arrange the design on the press bed, mix the ink type and turn the hand crank to produce a realistic letterpress print. The print design can then be shared via e-mail, social media and even exported to an image editing software.

The LetterMpress project was originally crowd-funded on Kickstarter. The recent updated version is a combination of creativity, education and functionality. It can be downloaded in the App Store for $5.99.
