Design and create your own stationary on a hand-fed 19th century plate printing press! Incorporate type faces, “wing dings”, and Victorian graphic enhancers to print invitations, Christmas cards, personal note cards and stationary. Working in the historic Canterbury Shaker Village Carpenter’s Shop, you will set type, get the finished form ready and print your very own project. Some manual dexterity is required and you are advised to wear clothing that can be soiled.
