Letterpress printing 2

Last week in the letterpress class, we started setting up our types.  I realized that I can spend hours in this process and still find it interesting :)  Although it can be frustrating sometimes when the size isn't right, but I like how there's multiple ways of doing things, and especially when you have total control over this project, you can enjoy it a lot more, I think.  
Tomorrow I will try to get to class earlier and start printing, oh! and I can't wait to see my first plate!

button sets

So far the online store is pretty much all set up, besides some minor details which I still need to work on.  These button sets are going to be available in the store, and also at the PMX!  I will definitely post again once the store is up and running :)

Letterpress printing 1

I took my first letterpress class 2 days ago, the instructor was the talented Madeleine Zygarewicz, owner of Panorama Press.  I met her first time earlier this year at Unique LA and I really loved her work, I finally had the chance and time to register her class, now I'm really excited about the projects we'll be doing :)

Printers Fair

Over the weekend I went to the Printers Fair in Los Angeles, the event was held at the international printing museum.  It was my first time visiting a printing fair, it was very exciting and cool, especially I got to learn more about letterpress :)
