凸版印刷與手工印刷

凸版印刷(英語:Letterpress)凸版從前以活版印刷為主。印刷术是中国古代的四大发明之一,开始为雕版印刷而在宋朝开始泥活字印刷。在1450年,德国人约翰内斯·古腾堡的发明了铅活字印刷印书籍。这使知识、思想能大量的传播,推动了文艺复兴也促使人类文明的大大跃进。 

 

进入了20世纪末,在数位印刷的兴起后,凸板印刷技术刷慢慢淡出主流的印刷市场。凸板印刷基本原理为将文字和图案被做成凸起的印版,凸起的部分附着油墨后,通过特殊的印刷设备将印版压进纸张,就会形成凹痕鲜明的文字和图形。这种质感强烈的凹痕效果,在视觉和触感上和一般印刷有很大的不同,也是它的最大特点。

 

经历了1000多年的演变,经由设计师选择纸张配合设计、颜色,再搭配各式印刷技巧,使印刷的美呈现在纸张的纹路里。这也使到凸板印刷技术的的美学能再次的印成各类精美印刷品。

 

在Def. Good,我們以1960年代的百年德國海德堡古董印刷機,一起學習如何印製獨一無二的刷印刷品。让我们帶領你從中體驗和發現古老的的印刷的美學与好玩之處。

Letterpress is a printing method using a relief image of a block / plate. In the olden times, types are cast in lead types. The printing techniques were first invented in China by transferring images / text from carved stones and later carving on wooden blocks in the Sui Dynasty. Later it was systematically developed in to loose clay types in the Soong Dynasty. In the 1450s, Johannes Gutenberg from Germany invented the mechanical movable-type printing press and books and texts get to be mass produced. This had allow the mass transmission of knowledge and thinking and further trigger the Renaissance in Europe and the development of modern civilisation.

 

In the 1980s, with the development of modern digital printing, the letterpress printing technique were slowly being obsolete and discarded from mainstream printing. The basic theory of letterpress is to have texts or images being made in to relief plates. Ink were then being apply on the plate and the press unto the paper using presses. Letterpress commonly features a relief impression of the type, although this was considered bad printing in traditional letterpress. The new liking are to create deep relief or “bite” printed image to text on the paper which distinguished it from the other printing techniques. This ‘impression’ had also become the uniqueness of letterpress printing.

 

With the development of printing for more than 1000 years, designers using great designs, choosing its papers, colours and combining various printing technique to restore its glorious beauty on papers and printed products. 

 

In Def Good, we uses 1960s German Heidelberg printing press to produce unique printed goods. Let join us for experiencing the great joy and beauty in printing.
