About:
Sometime inbetween the invention of moveable type and proliferation of 24-hour copy centers, the craft of letterpress printing evolved from an essential trade to a forgotten one. Abandoned by all but a few craftsmen, the art of letterpress printing became that of a bygone era. Printing, it seemed, had lost its soul, its beauty, and its individuality. Meadowlark Creative is bringing it back. Printing on a 1951 10 x 15 Chandler & Price press (one of the last ever made), Meadowlark Creative meticulously designs and prints custom business cards, stationary, invitations, and announcements that are as unique and memorable as the message you wish to communicate.
