Stampomatica: when letterpress meets 3D printing

ST_roma_3

Thanks to Stampomatica, letterpress is becoming accessible to people other than grumpy old typographers and dedicated type hipsters.

This said, you’ll still to be geeky enough to create 3D models of things you want to letterpress and print it in 3D. Stampomatica is just the tool that will allow you to use this 3D print to do letterpress by hand at home or at work.

Stampomatica is available in two different models: a small handy press to print business cards and a postcard size lever to create stationaries and paper goods like invitations, announcements, coasters and so on.

3D printed letterpress font created by London Design Team

atypeblock

This is the kind of projects I like, using modern technology to perpetrate traditional techniques. This project, created by A2-Type and New North Press, uses 3D printing to create “plastic blocks” that can be used for printing.

Apart from the “historical” interest of this project, the really cool thing is to think of all the possibilities that 3D printing will offer to shape the letters. Let’s see where they take this.

Letterpress Printing at P98a

Last week Erik Spiekermann published a video about his letterpress shop at P98a in Berlin. Even though the audience at large mainly knows him as a successful and acclaimed “digital” designer (290K followers on Twitter, anyone?), creator of some very popular digital typefaces, letterpress has been a constant factor in his career. During his studies at Berlin’s Free University Erik funded himself by running a letterpress printing press in the basement of his house (which famously burned down in the seventies), and last year you could find him hard at work at the TYPO Berlin 2013 Printing Workshop in the foyer of the Haus der Kulturen der Welt.

Erik Spiekermann explains in the video that the limitations of the technology and creating something tangible, something lasting with his hands are the perfect foil for his work in the digital domain where countless decisions have to be made at any moment in a project. Yet this is not just a nostalgic trip. Erik’s approach is true to his modus operandi. Instead of simply using the presses for what they are, he tries to marry this 500-year old technology with the newest technological advancements, building a bridge between digital and metal fonts.

The video by Frerk Lintz looks incredibly good, rich with atmosphere and visual texture without resorting to cheap tricks. Lintz also produces Folge, a video magazine presenting the most interesting contemporary minds in high quality documentaries. It won the Special Jury Prize at the German Webvideo Awards (Deutscher Webvideopreis) and German speakers should definitely check it – for now the only interview in English is with comic book artist Jason Lutes.

As a little extra, here’s another video of Erik Spiekermann printing on his old Korrex in Berlin.

Oh, and by the way: happy birthday, Erik! : )
