I printed this a while ago for Jack & Deanne who got married on June 5th this year — they wanted a memorable piece with the lace heart for their wedding and also for the keepsake, I was so happy to be able to create a custom print for them — and it came out so great!
Wood type set and adjusting placement and impression…
Always make sure with the compute mock up for spelling, placement etc.
It’s ready for inking — their wedding colors were red and pink — pink ink here for the names and the dates:
Now, printing the lace heart… (I could print this first, but due to the ink on the press, this way made sense at that time. Being flexible is a big part of letterpress printing, I think!)
and here is the finished print:
Congratulations, Jack and Deanne!!
