In the Studio 3.31.09

I was in the letterpress studio yesterday printing my friend’s wedding invitations. My friend is going to do the illustration on the invitation all by herself (I think she’s going to silkscreen them) so I was just printing the letters/texts – I will share how it turns out when she is all done with everything, but here are some photos from the studio…

Mixing color – I love mixing colors. So fun.


The plates set on the base on the Vandercook Press, plate is from Boxcar Press.


Color matches fine, love the impression, keep printing and printing…



I printed invitations, RSVP cards, and direction cards – 150 each. I can’t wait to see the final product with her illustrations, it’s going to be beautiful, I’m sure.
