Letterpressin’

I letterpressed and screenprinted a whole lot recently.  They’re such different processes and I love knowing how to do both of them (next up, lithography!) I can’t share some of it because a lot of it is gifts :) but I will, of course, after the holidays are over.  In the meantime, here’s some photos from my letterpress class, where we are all collaborating on a book around the theme of maps:

I attempted to make some holiday cards over the weekend and thought I had done an ok job… until I looked at them again today and realized that they were not really great at all.  They were done on dark blue paper which just made everything difficult to read and see.  So, this weekend, I’ll be back at the press, cutting it close and crossing my fingers that all my cards arrive before Christmas :)  Oh, and printing on white!  I did, however, get the envelopes done, so hopefully everything else will go smoothly and they’ll be done by Saturday!
