Letterpress Fun

Finding the calm after many storms today in my busy work schedule to show you a fun project I’ve been working on the past few weeks. I don’t normally post much of my own work on here, but this piece has me really pumped. This is a sample of a letterpress piece I designed for a local event. It’s being printed on 220 lb. pearl white paper over at Kenspeckle Letterpress in Duluth. That probably doesn’t mean much to those who don’t know jack about paper, but this stuff is dreamy (think drink coaster thick). I sent the design to Boxcar Press to get a photopolymer plate made for the actual printing process. I’m astounded at the amount of detail that can be picked up on these things. It’s so cool. I’m excited to see the finished product! That orange is so delightful. Yum.
