Commercial Letterpress

This is a beautifully printed piece of packaging, 9"x12 1/2", printed 3 colors from photopolymer on a Heidelberg cylinder by the company that makes the product being packaged. All their packaging is letterpress. There is noticable impression that makes the cross hatch pattern pop out, yet the inking and sharpness of the impression is superb. Not a wedding invitation, but an example of work that can be done letterpress and be hugely successful. Hicks Brothers worked with the customer to set up the press and get them in operation. The actual printing is done across the Bay in Emeryville.
