Letterpress is a sign of the times

In this charming video by The Ronaoke Times, John Reburn, owner of Appalacia Press, talks about the idea that seeing a surge in the letterpress business in these digital times is a sign of overall economic growth for the Virginia town.

In the video he says, “Digital will always have its place because of commerce and business and how things are made, but putting your handwriting and giving it to somebody has turned into being such a gift, it will trump anything digital or online.” [KR]
