Large solid areas of ink are difficult to execute well with a letterpress, unless you like a certain distressed look [like this – insert link]. They require a tremendous amount of impressional strength to transfer the ink evenly and get a good even film on the paper. We have two alternative solutions for floods of color. The first, and most popular, is to use a paper in the desired color for one side of the card, and duplex (glue) it to the other side [like this, insert link]. Alternately, if you need a spot color that we cannot find a good match for in a colored paper, we can send floods out to be printed by an offset lithographer.
