Letterpress is an old and rather lovely printing technique, that produces that sort-of indented quality of print on the page, by applying ink to a printing plate with a soft rubber roller, then running the plate through a machine that "presses" it onto the paper, transferring the ink and making that characteristic indented print.
I came across this new machine from QuickKutz. It's an adaptation of one of their die-cutting machines and is designed to produce "Letterpress" printing. Hmm.. There has been some discussion of this on the Web and I wasn't sure it sounded like a good idea. It sounded rather rickety and unreliable.
Still unsure, but the cost of a "real" press is enormous by comparison so it may be worth a try. Anyway, in case you are asking yourself a similar question, I came across this, which I found via michst74 on Twitter: Boxcar Press Blog - about the QuickKutz L Letterpress machine.
