Letterpress

Paper HeartComment
Yesterday was alot of fun. I spent the day learning letterpress at Harrington & Squires. Chrissie and Vicky the founders were great and really inspired me to buy my own press.








There were drawers and drawers of lead type...




I decided to design and print some business cards to promote this very blog...
I learned how to set my type in a composing stick...
 How to put my type into a chase...

And printed on an Adana 8 x 5

The finished product!

My lovely friend Lizzie made some beautiful rose, violet and hibiscus notecards using wooden and lead type...
