What is letterpress printing and what is it used for?

Letterpress printing is one of the oldest forms of commercial printing. Once used for mostly publications, it has become more of a stylized, artisan type of printing. Many people use it to give invitations or business cards a more rustic, simple look, creating nooks and crannies in the usually heavier weighted paper and pressing the ink into them.The end product is a textured piece that you can feel and will stand out from the rest bringing focus on both the paper and ink.
