- having done a fair amount of letterpress in service to advertising, you'd be
better served having a transparency shot of the work and having THAT
scanned. in that manner you can control your lighting, which when the day is
done, is what will describe the printed piece as having been accomplished
initially via letterpress. with raking light, even a 'kiss' impression can
be made to look 'punched'.
