3D-Printed Letterpress Brings Modernity To A Dated Technique [Video]
Designed by Technificio and Lino’s Type, 'Stampomatica' uses current technology to create old-fashioned prints.
Developed by Technificio and Lino’s Type, the project ‘Stampomatica‘ features two models of letterpress machines that offer people customization. It modernizes the traditional technique of analog printing using a letterpress with machines manufactured using contemporary 3D printing technology.
The two machines have been assembled with parts created by a 3D printer. One can print designs on business cards and the other produces graphics for postcards and invitations.
Users can print unique designs by choosing the image on the printing plate and the colors for the ink and material. The portable letterpress machines feature simple levers and clamps that work to stamp the graphics onto the cards.
Technificio and Lino’s Type were recently at Maker Faire Rome, where they gave Stampomatica a test drive. You can check out the machines in the video below:
