Letterpress and the iPad

Yep. That’s right. A guy in the US is designing an app that allows iPad users to recreate the style of letterpress, even placing ‘type’ in a forme, and then printing the finished product. Not a bad idea. Pity the printed sheet will not have any ‘show through’ or leave that beautiful impression only your fingers can feel when running across the back of the page. Now that’s what I call letterpress. So guys, try figure that out. You’re close but not close enough.

PS: I do not yet have an iPad – but when I do I reckon it’s not a bad app to have. (That was a promo!)
