What is the difference between Letterpress & Digital Printing ?

Unlike digital printing which uses toner based digital printers and computer technology to reproduce images onto paper surfaces quickly & cheaply at high volumes, letterpress uses raised metal plates containing physical impressions that are pressed into paper surfaces one sheet at time which results in subtle nuances & textures not achievable via digital means .

Additionally, letterpress also allows for greater color accuracy compared to digital due its subtractive color mixing system . Similarly offset lithography also uses plates but prints multiple sheets at once resulting in large production runs & lower costs than traditional letterpress machines .
