Come join us for a fun night of Christmas card printing!
In this special workshop, participants will make a small edition of letterpressed Christmas cards for the holiday season. Using Printology's simple proof press, we will print from original blocks we create in the first half of the workshop while we sip on coffee, listen to Christmas music, and enjoy some holiday sweets. Each participant will leave with 5 cards and envelopes.
Coffee, water, and sugary treats will be provided. No prior knowledge needed.
Q: What exactly is letterpress?
A: Letterpress is a printing method. It is unlike most printing methods today because the ink does not just sit on top of the paper - flat. Instead, the ink is pressed into the paper leaving behind a beautful indentation. Long ago in letterpress's hayday, it was not favorable for the press to leave an indentation. But today, we all love to be reminded that this is a hand done process.
