Three Dimensional Graphics

Art & Design

Die-cutting, edge printing, embossed lettering…these are the terms of trade for the print maker.  In a time when the printed word is being eased out by the digital version, letterpress printing seems like a throwback to another era.  On the other hand, manually printed graphics on a paper offers a tactile experience that cannot be duplicated by digital media.

Studio On Fire is a letterpress printer that is breathing new life into an old school media.  Their work exploits the physical experience of the ‘letter press object’.  They don’t treat paper as a two dimensional surface, but rather a 3 dimensional object, cutting into the surface and building up layers of ink to create compelling work.
