The article offers information on the ancient craft of letterpress printing which is being used in the contemporary times. Letterpress, which roots back to the second century Chinese woodblock printing, is a method of printing text and images by placing the paper onto a raised surface which has been inked and applying appropriate pressure. As cited, it is a manual process but has evolved in the modern times in which a software program can be used to create the photopolymer plate.
