The letterpress print process dates back to the 1400s with Johannes Gutenberg's invention of moveable type. Raised plates are pressed into paper, leaving a tactile impression. We use thick, cotton papers to maximize the effect. Each ink color is printed individually, resulting in restrained color palettes that give designs a simple elegance.
Hello!Lucky's letterpress greeting cards are printed, assembled, & packed at Egg Press in Portland, OR. Where they crank out greeting cards, & custom jobs with heidelberg presses.
We use soy-based inks, eco-friendly locally-sourced papers and water soluble solvents. In addition, our process results in minimal waste. Skilled artisans who have apprenticed with master printers print each of our letterpress cards and stationery.
The digital print process represents the latest in printing technology. Print-ready files are sent directly from a computer to a state-of-the-art, professional grade HP Indigo printing press. This method allows for cost-effective short print runs, fast turnaround times and minimal waste.Hello!Lucky's digital printing is done by partners in the Bay Area and London (for European orders). We use the same high-quality, 100% cotton archival papers that we use in our letterpress printing, resulting in the finest quality with the ability to coordinate letterpress and digitally printed pieces (letterpress and digital versions of our standard ink colors closely match).
