Although similar, letterpress uses liquid ink and is much more costly. The main advantage of embossing, aside from cost, is that it can be added to pre-made products, such as those in our packaging line. A logo die is stamped directly onto the product (such as a lid on a box or folded welcome folder), where as a letterpress can only be used on flat sheets before product production. This means that we can add hot foil stamping to virtually any packaging product offered in the Paper Shop!
