Press Ready Artwork: How does colour work with letterpress?

Letterpress is a spot colour process, each colour is applied in a separate pass through the press. The inks used are translucent so are affected by the cardstock colour, so to obtain colour accurate results a white stock is required. We’d recommend choosing your Pantone colour reference from the printed Pantone swatch not on screen as it can vary considerably. For more information please have a look at our Guide to Creating Press Ready Artwork.
