I am taking a letterpress class during my winter break. So far I have created a test print of a dog and sun that I may turn into a card and made a vintage Christmas coaster. My teacher has a room full of drawers filled with type and image letterpress pieces. Right now we are currently working on a book page with one paragraph of text. It takes many hours to sort through each letter and line each word up correctly. I have learned that you need set up each word backwards which makes it difficult. It’s a fun class, but I am thankful that printing today is a lot quicker and easier!

lettuce taco about aiden’s bar mitzvah save the date! his special event will be taking place on cinco de mayo, so touches of mexico were an absolute must. we printed the 2 color save the date on kraft cover and mailed it out in a translucent vellum envelope stuffed with extra large confetti. they were sealed with bold address labels that happily greeted guests with ‘hola’. we are eager to begin the invitation design!
