This authorization will allow participants to be authorized to either print on our Vandercooks (#4 and SP-25) or our platen presses (Pilot and Pearl). Printers may need to book a second on-site session to be authorized for both types of presses.
Every letterpress authorization will ensure that printers are familiar with setting up the press, mixing inks, inking the press, adjusting pressure and registration, printing, and thorough cleaning of the press and all tools. There may not be time to practice printing both a polymer plate and movable type, but both methods can be reviewed as needed.
As with all our Studio Access Trainings, we will also cover equipment available to check out and press reservation policies.
