Designer Jason Lindsey just send me a video he created for a new iPad app from mpressInteractive that let’s you play with letterpress virtually. Watching it, I could almost smell the ink. (The app is available for $5.99 from the Apple App Store.)
LetterMpress is a virtual letterpress environment for iPad that allows anyone to create authentic-looking letterpress designs and prints.
The design process is the same as the letterpress process—you place and arrange type and cuts on a press bed, lock the type, ink the type, and print. You can create unlimited designs, with multiple colors, using authentic vintage wood type and art cuts. And you can print your design directly from LetterMpress or save it as an image for import it into other applications.
