It was a creative afternoon spent designing a piece (holiday card), with our choice of lead and woodblock type. We fit our select type together like a puzzle with wood and metal spacers to create a uniform block, then inked up the presses and hand cranked the card stock through the letterpress to create gorgeous impressions. A big thanks to Sam for his careful instruction and wealth of shared letterpress knowledge. Much appreciated!
Maybe one day I'll have the space to have a press in my garage and crank out beautiful printed work. Until then, thanks Porchlight Press for such a great afternoon!
And, count yourself very lucky if you receive one of my letterpress Christmas cards in the mail this season :)
