DIY Letterpress Greeting Cards (January)

Please join us for an afternoon of printing your own greeting cards using our traditional printing presses. The tactile quality of ink pressed into paper will surely leave an impression on the lucky recipients of your handmade cards!

Students will each set their own short saying, phrase, or statement using metal and wood type. This text can even be combined with an illustration from our collection of vintage relief blocks! The end result: A festive and professional one-of-a-kind holiday card, thank you card, birthday card, or “every day” card to send friends and family.

This workshop combines an overview of letterpress printing and it’s unique history with hands-on art making, and it is a great way to try out a new craft. Our studio will provide 15 A6 Eco White fold over cards, but students can bring blank notecards if they prefer a different size or color.
