I'm old school - I don't design on a computer, preferring to create with physical type - if it was good enough for Gutenberg then it works well for me.

Movable type and letterpress has been around since the 15th century and is a process where an impression is created by inked and raised type being pressed into paper. Because each piece is handprinted, and also because I use vintage type there will be some variations in impression and ink distribution. This does not occur in digitally created posters and is a real feature of letterpress adding to its bespoke charm.
