LetterMpress is easy to learn and fun to do, but it's not a toy. Create designs with authentic wood type and vintage "art cuts." You can mix custom colors and make multiple impressions on a single sheet. The specially designed studio environment lets you create and save several variations.

Once you have created your prints you can print, copy, or export. The files can be opened or imported by most popular graphics applications, allowing you to integrate authentic wood type and art impressions into your design palette.

With LetterMpress you can create:
  • Fine art posters
  • Event posters and mailers
  • Invitations
  • Music CD covers
  • Greeting cards
  • Scrapbook covers and interior pages
  • Signage
  • Calendars
  • Framed wall art, and more
