Founded by Antonio Rossi in Florence, Italy
Continually operated by family in the traditional letterpress process.
Rossi 1931 is family owned and operated paper making company in Florence, Italy - operating since 1931.
These unique Italian designs, dating from the fifteenth and sixteenth century, are printed on high-quality soft paper.
This entire collection is made with the family's traditional letterpress.
Developed in the 14th century, letterpress printing involves setting type and motifs in reverse on a letterpress plate.
The plate is then inked and pressed on to the surface of the paper.
The pressing process transfers the ink and leaves a deep impression on the paper creating a three dimensional print that has a feel unlike any other type of printing.
The nature of the printing demands a high quality, and generally heavier weight, paper that will not tear or thin when pressed.
Created with a perfect type of paper containing fibers that are soft and readily accept an impression as well as ink.
As you might expect, letterpress printing is both time consuming and labor-intensive.
Prints are made one-at-a-time with each print having its own unique variations of ink coverage and depth of impression.
With the covid pandemic my trip to Italy was cancelled this year. I was just about out of my stationery that I usually by there, and I thought I would have to do without. No! Not after I found Letter Seals. I’ve ordered from this company twice now. Customer service is top priority, even specials notes from the owner to help me find a variety “folding” and flat notecards. This is a small business that delivers quality during a difficult time. Now, I will always order my stationery from Letter Seals, and will have to find something else to fill my suitcase on my return trips to Italy!
I was surprised to see that the only poppies are in the lining of the envelope and the note card is blank. The paper is high quality, however, and card edges are nicely deckled. I was graciously offered a refund but I will keep them. Disappointed, however, as the poppy design is truly beautiful.
Just the size and number of cards I needed. So tastefully presented! I felt like I was getting a gift! Thank you!
I had a great experience with this company! They were quick in shipping and super thoughtful with their packaging. They even included one wax seal! Love it. :)
The poppy note cards are beautiful and lovely to use - thank you for stocking them
