Lots of labels

11 September 2008

Many people these days think letterpress is only good for short runs. When our Heidelbergs were built in the early 1960s they were the hi-tech machines of the age, capable of printing dead register work at high speeds. Today’s  presses are much faster, or course, put we still can and do long runs. We have just printed 240,000 of these wine labels for our friends and neighbours at Vesuvius International. The black labels were printed in silver first and the yellow was then overprinted. As we had 40 of them up on a sheet sized 640 x 480 mm getting them in register wasn’t easy, but we got there.
