Lady Loves: iPad App LetterMpress

Reading my favourite Blog The Design Files recently I notice a sponsored add for LetterMpress. A new iPad app that replicates a Letter Press. I love letter press, it is such a beautiful, traditional artform. I instantly went to the app store and purchased this baby, for $6.49AUD it is a beauty.

After playing around with the application (i didn't read the instructions) for about 45 mins I got the hang of it. It kept me entertained for hours.

Step One - Compose: Place your type and characters down on the plate. You can add spaces and scale the letters and also change your fonts!

Step Two - Getting ready to Print: Here you can select your ink colour, coverage and even the paper colour. As you can see it is exactly like a letter press.

 Step Three - Print and Save: Once you have printed this gets saved to the paper rack and you can put it through the press again in a different colour or design.
I have to admit getting everything the right way to print took me a while to get my head around. This, however has keep my entertained for hours and it a great way to replicate letterpress on the iPad.

Happy Faux Printing

Love the Lady
