Description

Come make a card or two using some of our vast collection of holiday cuts and illustrations. In this two
day workshop, you will learn the basic principles of letterpress operation and typesetting. You will hand
set and print a Greeting or Holiday Card using one of our floor model platen presses. You will learn the
basics of typesetting and compositing, imposing and locking up forms in a chase, type case layout, platen
press setup, press inking, treadle powered press operation, press clean up, breaking down and tying of
forms, and redistributing type. You will also learn about paper handling including cutting down parent
sheets, and final product presentation and packaging. For this class we will be making A6 (4½” X 6⅛”)
Greeting/Holiday cards using ornaments and cuts from the Boutique De Junque and the private
collection of Dave Churchman and hand setting a small amount of type from our huge collection. By the
end of the workshop you will have completed a small printing job from design to finished product
learning the basic skills needed for jobbing on the human powered jobbing press. This class will be open
to 6 students and offers a great opportunity for hands on learning with individual instruction. Advanced
participants will get instruction on multi-color printing.
