The Press Room

We recently had a few students from Cambrian College’s Graphic Design program come by the studio to learn a few things about letterpress for a project they were working on. We were more than happy to show them around the press room, give them a printing demonstration and talk about the press.  Since we bought our letterpress we’ve been happy with how open and generous other printers have been with sharing their experiences and we want to do the same.

While we talked about our press, one of the students, Tennille Heinonen, took some photos of the press and some things around the studio. Here are her photos. We think they turned out great and have a really beautiful look to them, thanks Tennille!
