Make use of these babies during our letterpress workshop


Introduction to Letterpress Printing

In this day-long introductory workshop, you will be introduced to our 60-year-old 10×15 Chandler Price & Co. New Style press, learn the basics of setting lead type, locking up the chase, mounting the chase on the press, inking and printing one colour. You will be printing your own personalized stationery and we have over 100 type styles and sizes to choose from, as well as boxfuls of ornaments and etched graphics.

You will also learn what real “em” and “en” quads are, learn the basic California job case and what all those strange typography terms really mean.

We can only take on three participants to ensure everyone has enough time with the press.

When: Saturday, October 13th, 2012
Time: 9am-5pm
What you will print: personalized stationery (approx. 4×5.25″) (if you have a specialized project, please contact us well in advance)
