Bonadies Creative LetterMpress

As the story goes, Steve Jobs kept attending classes after dropping out of Reed College, choosing subjects that he was actually interested in. One that had a profound impact on him was a calligraphy class; what he learned there inspired him to use beautiful fonts on Apple’s computers, a signature feature of all Macs today. That’s why we think he’d appreciate the Mac App Store title LetterMpress ($10) from Bonadies Creative. It allows you to create authentic-looking letterpress prints, right on your Mac.


One of the things that’s great about LetterMpress is the interface; it’s made to look and feel as close to a real letterpress setup as possible. You get to do everything from placing and arranging the type to choosing the color of the ink, and even turning a virtual hand crank when you’re ready to print. The app includes both letters and images so that you can do a full design. The prints are super high resolution—up to 300 dpi—and since it supports Lion’s full-screen mode, you can really take advantage of Apple’s 21.5” and 27” displays.
